Online Piracy Does Not Negatively Affect Digital Music Sales, May Actually Help Music Industry | Music industry news | Scoop.it

Media sharing, again, is seen having a positive effect on legal sales, increasing the numbers of visitors to legal download sites

Downloading illegal music is still a problem but has lessened by the introduction of Pandroa, Spotify and other monthly paid music streaming application.

Looks like the major labels have another study to go discredit.  Just days after researchers from the European Commission found that illegal downloading has little impact on industry revenues and could be boosting digital sales, Nielsen has jumped in with corroborating information.   

Specifically, Nielsen found that pirates are generally more engaged music fans.  They download more stuff than those playing by the rules.  And just maybe, buy more stuff.

Makes think about it diferently. I m not so surprised. It s a part of logic /illogic complexity

Michael's curator insight, April 16, 2013 11:18 AM

I wouldn't think that just becuase there are more illegal downloaders that there will be more people to buy albums

What I like about this article is that its not all focused on the negative it shows that there might be a positive part of this including an increase in digital sales. It shows that not everything from this bad and that it might not be such a bad thing like everyone is trying to make it out to be. This in my opinion because of the different point of view is a very reliable source.

Piracy has effected the downloads of legal music, other study’s has shown in towns that have high number of downloading illegally there are less buyer for legal music

This research shows downloading music illegally does not impact digital music sales

 

Layne Giese's curator insight, November 11, 2:04 PM

I thought this was an interesting study, but it is so hard to find out the real truth when it comes to things like this. Sure people can say they simply would not buy music if they didn't obtain it illegally but who knows. I never take information from studies/surveys about topics like this too seriously but some very valid points were brought up and I do see some truth behind it.

BT, Virgin Media, BSkyB and Talk Talk are being asked to sign up to a voluntary code for policing illegal downloading

Via Pierre Priot
Mauricio Gallant's insight:

Record labels started collecting illegal download data, but they still don't have a good plan of action to follow that up with. Prosecuting the fans will not solve anything

Going after your audience - pirate or legit - is NOT the answer.
