Not mysterious

File sharers buy 30% more music than non-P2P peers.

Well, duh. Completely obvious. If it weren’t for file sharing the past decade, I’d probably have spent less than $50 on music of any sort, including concert tickets.

With file sharing, I’ve spent closer to $1,000.

The RIAA’s quest to stop file sharing has nothing to do with protecting artists or creating incentives to make more music – it’s all about protecting a business model that harms artists and fans.
