Can it be true? Those who use P2P services are also spend four and a half times more money on legal downloads than those who do not use P2P services. Granted, a lot of that is probably because those using the legal downloads are tech savy, but still. It looks like people are trying before they are buying.
From the article:
“There’s a myth that all illegal downloaders are mercenaries hell-bent on breaking the law in pursuit of free music.”
In reality hardcore fans “are extremely enthusiastic” about paid-for services, as long as they are suitably compelling.”
