Piracy in ITM - How big is the problem?
In terms of the music industry as a whole, there has been much talk about the affects of piracy on CD sales and where it has had an enormous impact on the more popular musics through illegal downloads and people copying disks etc…, I would like to find out to what extent piracy affects the genre of ITM.
I wont or perhaps can’t be so bold as to ask you what percentage of your own CD collection has been illegally acquired but I would be very grateful to hear your opinions and observations of other peoples collections. I also think that it goes without saying that all people/friends mentioned should remain anonymous!
Finally, do people burn copies of albums because they’re just too expensive?
Many thanks for your comments and I’ll look forward to reading them!
