Let's not forget the basic fact that every year more teenagers get jobs and join the music buying revolution. CD sales are always going to "go up", even if the average person buys less albums than they did 4 years ago. In fact the only usefull stat (which cannot easily be obtained) is to calculate how many records per person is being purchased, only then can you see if P2P increase or decreases CD sales. Finally I wouldn't be surprised if the DVD fad bubble is about to burst and people than went from heavy CD purchases to heavy DVD purchases, well soon go back to CDs (maybe it's only me. I figure after your DVD collection breaks the 100 mark, the appeal to buy movies decreases.
