UK research firm The Leading Question finds some evidence for a remarkable OECD finding (see my June 29 post): there is no proven correlation between decreasing CD sales and increasing illegal file-sharing through peer-to-peer networks. Quite to the contrary: their survey concludes that regular downloaders of unlicensed music spend GBP 5.52 a month on legal digital music, versus just GBP 1.27 spent by other music fans.
