Per the mentioned article:
As part of the research, 5,911 Spanish citizens were polled regarding downloading and sharing pirated content â€” piracy accounts for 95.6% all music, and 83.7% of online movies. Due to this, copyright groups claim that the Spanish government lost out on $1.7 billion taxes during 2009.
It’s a shame to think these people are trying to trick people into believing each pirated song/movie is a lost sale. I don’t know about you, but most people I know who download music wouldn’t purchase everything in their library if P2P were to disappear.
