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.

Nah if you think aobu tit…this is such a falsehood. They have just come off of record sales years for selling the same crap to people. Imagine what would happen if we actully had TALENTED artists selling things. I bet they sould have the chance ot catch up to the movie industry in profits. Then watch the lawsuits fly! All #;s produced by the **AA are fudged no matter what. I will always take their reports with a grain of salt, and wait for an independant third party to tell us what’s up.
