At last a report confirming what most file sharers already know.

Quote
Analyst firm Musicmetric has published new data to show that court ordered website blocks (censorship) imposed by broadband ISPs in the United Kingdom against internet piracy websites (e.g. The Pirate Bay) have had “little impact” on “illegal” BitTorrent based file sharing (P2P) activity.

In fact global file sharing appears to be increasing, although there is some evidence in Musicmetric’s latest Digital Music Index (DMI) report to suggest that legal music streaming services like iTunes and Spotify are helping to reduce piracy in the UK and US.

The facts are pretty self explanatory to anyone with a brain, if you drive the file sharers off of one system they will pop up on another one, that's how its always been and as the UK folks have shown if you offer them legal alternatives they will purchase stuff they like but not simply to find out if its crap or not, that's for the old days now folks listen first and then make a purchase, back like how it used to be in the days of the record shops, such shops don't exist much now thanks to the deal done by the recording industry to hop into bed with itunes instead of building something for themselves, selling poor quality mp3s is of course acceptable to young folks who don't understand that they are being defrauded but for those of us who own Cd's etc its plain that solid property will always trump a streaming or low quality overpriced download.
