Stereophile: Downloading Increases

“Downloading audio files, whether through a paid music service or not, continues to grow as a means to accumulate music in the US.  According to a recent Ipsos-Insight study, as of April 2003, nearly one-third of the general US population aged 12 or older has downloaded a music or MP3 file from the Internet.  This translates into roughly 65 million downloaders.

The survey also notes that enthusiasm for downloading audio files has increased significantly in the past several months, with the proportion of Americans who have downloaded a music or MP3 file growing from 26% in December 2002 to 30% in April 2003.”

Though it looks bad for BuyMusic.  They are looking like a poster child for what not to do.
