Out of tune: music downloads fall

Figures from UK research group The Leading Question show that the number of British music lovers who bought tracks legally fell from 16% in 2006 to 14% in 2007. Even worse, some 22% have carried on sharing files illegally.

'Many UK music fans are telling us they are dissatisfied with the current legal, paid-for digital music experience,' said Tim Walker, managing director of The Leading Question, quoted in today's Guardian newspaper. 'They might buy a few tracks from iTunes when they get a new iPod for Christmas, but few go on to become regular paying downloaders.'
