No Shit: File Sharers Buy More Music

Perhaps before the movie/music industry and government think about taking legal action against downloaders, they could take a look at this recent study to see who really supports them!

TOTH to Cory Doctorow:

A British research outfit has determined that music file-swappers buy more music than their non-infringing peers:

Digital music research firm The Leading Question found that they spent four and a half times more on paid-for music downloads than average fans. Rather than taking legal action against downloaders, the music industry needs to entice them to use legal alternatives, the report said.
According to the music industry, legal downloads have tripled during 2005.
