Illegal music downloads drop by 1/3 in the UK.

The Guardian mentions someithng that I think is a natural consequence of the internet’s general move away from P2P to streaming and paid services. If you use Soundcloud, Spotify, Pandora, Grooveshark or any of the other players on large music websites like NPR, you’re never going to download music again, and if you do, it’ll probably be the odd album off of iTunes or when someone offers a free download in an email. I’m eager to see if the USA follows suit, because the more artists get paid for the music, the better. And to celebrate, Don’t Copy That Floppy is presented below without comment. 😀
