Macworld UK: US legal music downloads double

“Digital music download services are exploding, with the number of US consumers downloading tracks doubling in the first half of 2003.

Ownership of MP3 players such as Apple’s market leading iPod is also climbing: 19 per cent of US music downloaders own such devices - up from 12 per cent in December 2002.

A quarterly digital music behaviour report from research firmIpsos-Insight shows that in late June 2003, “roughly” one out of six (16 per cent) of US music downloaders aged 12 and older had paid to download music online. The company says this is the equivalent of 10 million people.”
