    Link: iPod Owners Not Thieves
    Description:: A survey of US and UK music buyers reveals that although 25 per cent of people admit to downloading music from file-sharing services, only seven per cent of iPod owners do so. Proving that iPod users are either scrupulously honest or more paranoid they'll get sued by RIAA than owners of lesser music players.

    You know the first thing they teach in a stats course? That you can use numbers to support anything, without manipulation, just some slight tweakage! Statistics are great.........

    Most people with ipods care about whats going into their mp3 player and would not put those files into it unless itunes dont have the song. i think people with ipods feel dirty putting p2p files in the ipod(thats me)

    Well yeah. People with iPods are willing to pay a little more for quality and the cool factor. So they use iTunes with it's music store or their CDs. Those who cheap out and buy whatever cost the least are more likely to use "free" or cheap services.

    Yes, but 23.7% of statistics are made up ;)
