Music piracy continues to rise


— 11:48 AM on June 2, 2005

Although sales through Apple's iTunes Music Store continue to grow, Forbes is reporting that music piracy is still on the rise.

According to the NPD Group, consumers purchased 25.9 million songs in March 2005, 52% more than they bought a year ago. Consumers also downloaded more than 242 million songs illegally this March, up 25% from March 2004.
And it's not like there's any shortage of legitimate sources for music downloads.
