So all these people deleted there music portfolios. Why not just create a new folder and move those songs you downloaded into that new file?

Someone explain why i can go to a record store and buy a used CD, but not download one off the internet? Sure someone paid for it already, but how is anyone to know the 8 gigs on my machine is not from purchased albums?

Yet there are over 3.7 Million Users on KaZaA right now.

Yeah its "working".

How can you survey only 40,000 people and then conclude that over 2 million people deleted their music files? This sounds like some kind of RIAA propoganda to me.

But that's just my take on the article. :)

I think the real reason for decreased file swapping (if there is any) is iTunes. :D
