“Europeans purchased over three million song downloads in 2003 from the continent’s primary online music store, OD2, raising faint hopes the lackluster music industry is on the road to recovery. [...]

Still, the volume of downloads is growing 25 percent month on month, Grimsdale said, which would mean download sales should grow more than three-fold in 2004. [...]

The more mature U.S. market is growing even faster. American music fans purchased 30 million download tracks in 2003 as online stores such as Apple Computer’s iTunes proved a big hit with consumers.”
