These results are clear and consistent. P2P performance and variety will never be matched so it will be a preferred method of discovery. People avoid artificial restrictions, advertising and other annoyances. If they were happy with the limited selection vanishing music the recording industry provides, they would all still be listening to advertisements on radio. The more you give people, the more they buy. Most changes since the same thing was shown in 2006 have only made the situation more obvious. Music fans buy music but want freedom and an honest deal."
