Charts: How Spotify is killing music piracy | Wiseband | Scoop.it
Music piracy has gone down significantly in the Netherlands since the launch of Spotify in that country. What’s more, artists who embrace Spotify see lower levels of piracy.

I think this is interesting because it explains why music piracy has gone down since the launch of Spotify and why artists are embracing Spotify even though they aren't getting much money for the streams.

William Reilly's curator insight, December 6, 2015 5:38 PM

It is interesting to see that piracy itself has gone down, but you have to wonder what kind of overall impact this has on the business of music overall. The fact that artists who embrace Spotify see even lower levels of piracy makes it seem like a huge step up from normal, but what kind of rights and profit will Spotify take away?

Isaiah Muller's curator insight, February 17, 7:34 PM

Spotify in my mind isn't really on my piracy list. yes you can listen to free music, but you can also pay a small fee to get as much music as you want. In 2010 in the Netherlands, Spotify was introduced and from 2010 to 2011 the rate of piracy actually dropped 10% even though we will see if Spotify can do something to fight it everywhere rather than just being able to afford it.

So far Hadopi has been spending more money than it will ever recover from piracy.

There’s an endless debate about whether file sharing is “stealing.” We eventually shouldn’t “pirate” files, but it’s premature to condemn people who do it today when those same people are not paid for their participation in very lucrative network...

Digital Music News - Nielsen: 'Consumers Who Engage In Piracy Will Download More Music More Often...'

Digital Music News - Nielsen: 'Consumers Who Engage In Piracy Will Download More Music More Often...' | Wiseband | Scoop.it

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.

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

Mauricio Gallant's curator insight, January 19, 2014 10:19 AM

Media sharing and streaming again has a positive effect, boosting sales all across the board

Brittany Paige's curator insight, October 8, 2015 9:37 PM

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.

Plus on est riche, plus on télécharge sans payer... : The reason richer people download more is more likely due to the technology they can afford – expensive computers, Android phones and iPhones and high-speed broadband (this also explains why most file sharers, according to the research, live in a metro area rather than the countryside).
