MORE FUEL FOR THE DEBATE: Here’s Ars Technica’s take on the survey’s key finding—that, in absolute terms, P2P users buy more legitimate music than those who have amassed digital music collections without using P2P software: “The survey provides some limited support for the view that file sharing promotes, rather than hinders, legitimate music purchases. The average American on a peer-to-peer network has a music library of almost 2,000 songs. Of these, 760 (38%) are reported to be legitimately purchased. In contrast, those who say they are not P2P users (but do collect digital music files) have an average library size of 1,300 songs. Of those, 582 (roughly 45%) were purchased from legitimate sources. Most of the others were ripped from CDs or copied from friends and family. Of course, correlation is not causation. It's possible, for example, the most avid music fans are also the most likely to be drawn to peer-to-peer networks. Perhaps without those networks they would have purchased even more music from legitimate services. But at a minimum, it's an important reminder many heavy P2P users are also heavy consumers of music from legitimate channels.” (1/22a)
