This is news? Other studies have shown that downloads increase the likelihood of sales of albums.
For myself, I rather buy the album if the album is worth buying. Otherwise I'll purchase single tracks. The record industry is more about pushing albums out without considering the worth of all tracks.
Too bad that the RIAA has Congress on their bankroll.

Yes the labels seem perfectly willing to twist the facts in their favor using some very flawed figures. This is just an excuse to charge more for CDs and hope that somehow sales will turn around if they can just force consumers into a corner. If the consumers complain just invest a bunch more on lobbying.
Since their sales are obviously dropping from something other than piracy they have to keep on telling lies and blaming others until people believe them. Fessing up to their mistakes and taking a smaller cut just isn't their style.
