Posted by: Blake Solomon (11/02/09)
According to this study, those who download music illegally are the same people who spend the most on music.

I can see that. I download everything before I buy it, I just like to make sure it's not going to suck before I spend money on a record.

I do end up buying most of what I download. I usually only download because I'm impatient and can't wait when a record leaks.

This. I do spend a decent amount on music. I enjoy the tangible aspect of owning the album/music.

I download music all the time, but I go out and purchase the music as well when I find that I enjoy it. If I don't like it...it's deleted. Simple as that.

As the article said, this has been proved by many studies.

Without downloading, I wouldn't have heard of half the bands I listen to... and in turn, I would never have bought their CD, gone to their live show, bought their neon glasses, etc.

So, support.

Yeah, because that justifies it. It's like saying "People who kill the most people are also more likely to do random acts of kindness."

It makes complete sense. The people who download the most music are the people who are most interested in music in general, so it's only logical that those are the same people who'd purchase the most records.

Other than country music fans.
