Does piracy affect music sales? We'll see...

A study concludes that since Limewire the music sharing site was shut down, the amount of music piracy in the US has dropped 43%.

Well, if the music industry doesn't see a corresponding increase in retail music sales, that means their assertion that low sales is linked to piracy is..... umm........ WRONG!

i've never used limewire nor do i know anyone else who does. i do love to buy cds but the music i want is astronomically prices because of import and obscurity. top 40 stuff is barely affordable. when i do buy cds? i buy at shows and straight from the artists online. no middlemen. so take that riaa. ^_^
