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

Illegal downloading actually is suppose to boost sells because the people downloading the music illegally wouldn't have gotten it if piracy downloading sites we're not available and help the spread of music by saying hey you should listen to this song and possible the person might buy the song or album still in a negative effect the record labels don't receive all the income

John Yosh's curator insight, August 11, 2014 4:16 PM

The music industry has claimed for years that digital music piracy has destroyed their potential to sell physical records in music stores and also hurt their sales of digital downloads. Lobbying groups such as the RIAA and BPI have been pushing for years for harsh penalties and tougher regulations on illegal music downloading. This new study by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, however, actually shows an opposite trend; people who are downloading music illegally are actually more likely to purchase the music in some form. The study also refutes another common argument that streaming services such as Spotify and Pandora hurt music sales as well. The new research claims that streaming services in fact do increase legal digital music sales. Illegal downloading may not be as harmful to the music industry as once believed.

Consumers say they wouldn't buy if it weren't for piracy. Even if there is trespassing of private property rights and copyrights piracy doesn't really dent anyones pocket statistically. Sometimes I research unknown bands and I stream it on youtube to see what they soundalike before running to the store to snag a copy.

Not that Diplo needs any more excuses to plant his hybrid seeds within the mainstream musical garden, yet his Major Lazer project allows him to express not only his love of the dancehall sound, but do so with a cavalcade of like-minded artsts.
