File sharing and CD burners

Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: Mi2N - June 13, 2002

Contrary to the widely-held belief that file-sharing is mainly used by cash-strapped high-school and college students, post-collegiate adults also report sampling this often, "technologically-cumbersome activity," says a new report

About one-fifth (19%) of the American population aged 12 and over have downloaded music or mp3 files from an online file-sharing service, and this translates into over 40 million users within the current US population (as per 2000 US Census figures) says Ipsos-Reid in its quarterly TEMPO report, 'Keeping Pace with Online Music Distribution,' going on.

"This number is nearly equal to the proportion of Americans who indicated they had downloaded a music or MP3 from any website in December of 2001 (23% of Americans aged 12 and over).

"Two-fifths of 12-24-year-olds have downloaded music or MP3 files from an online file-sharing service (41% of 12-17 year-olds, and 45% in the 18-24 age group)," it says. ON "cash-strapped" versus "post-collegiate," it says, "26% of those between the ages of 25-34, and 14% of those aged 35 to 54 reporting having downloaded music or MP3 files from an online file-sharing service.

"In addition, American males are significantly more likely than their female counterparts to have engaged in online file-sharing nationwide, as one-quarter (25%) of U.S. men over the ages of 12 report having engaged in this activity, compared to only 14% of American women."

Another nemesis of the music industry is the proliferation of CD-R's and CD-Burners, Ipsos-Reid goes on.

"As PC manufacturers are more and more vocal in promoting music-focused PC packages bundling CD-R drives, soundcards, and speakers together with consumer-friendly software interfaces, Americans are clearly beginning to recognize the inherent music capabilities today's PCs offer," says the company's Matt Kleinschmit.

"While the goal of this wave of TEMPO was not to draw a link between file-sharing, CD-Burners, and the slump in music sales, we can see that American music enthusiasts are becoming increasingly acquainted with the flexibility that digital music allows, and as a result, may be more apt to venture beyond the traditional channels of music distribution as a part of their audio behaviors."
