hmmm

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?

Sounds a bit fishy to me ...

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.
