So sayeth a new survey, according to an article at News.com. The survey indicates that the percentage of Americans downloading music from the Internet dropped to 14 percent, down from 29 percent in a March-May 2003 survey.
One interesting note from the story is the fact that, while approximately half of the people sued by the RIAA have settled out of court, "others have mounted fierce legal challenges to the lawsuits." We're left to wonder if these others constitute the other half of those sued, or if there's a third category that the article doesn't mention.
Many have said the RIAA's tactic of suing file sharers is a calculated gamble that could have a PR backlash if it is employed on a long-term basis. It will be interesting to see if other surveys on the subject have similar findings.
