Pirate music downloads at all time high

Illegal music downloading is at an all-time high and set to rise further, according to a report published by Entertainment Media Research. Although social networking sites are boosting interest in music that translates into sales, a growing band of consumers are unconcerned about being prosecuted for illegal downloads.

The Digital Music Survey, that polled of 1,700 people, suggests illegal music buying is widespread, with 43 per cent claiming that they are illegally downloading tracks, rising from 36 per cent last year and 40 per cent in 2005. This year only 33 per cent cited the risk of being prosecuted as a deterrent against unauthorised downloading, compared with 42 per cent in 2006.
