Big Music's Broken Record and RIAA Statistics Don't Add Up to Piracy, two articles saying basically the same thing: that while CD sales have fallen, this is more to do with above-inflation price rises, and a larger drop in releases. (A while ago I asked whether music sales had really fallen. I don't believe piracy is a problem. The industry could easily create a system with value-added so people would want to pay. Leave it to the market - including piracy - and we'll get there sooner.)
