According to a new Jupiter Report, experienced file sharers are 75 percent
more likely than the average online music fan to increase their music
spending levels. Meanwhile, consumers with file- sharing capabilities,
CD-writable drives and broadband technologies are 95 percent more likely to
buy music than the average online music fan.
According to Aram Sinnreich, Jupiter senior analyst, "It is safe to say that
active usage of online music content is one of the best predictors of
increased consumer purchasing. Thus, music sellers should devote their
limited resources to online marketing and distribution -- rather than
eradicating the phantom threat of file-sharing, if they truly wish to stanch
the blood flow and turn the music market around."
