    Users forced away from Illegal downloading, BlindTechWorldNews sees Users make Choice

    "We are now seeing real evidence that people are increasingly put off by illegal file-sharing and turning to legal ways of enjoying music online," said IFPI Chairman and CEO John Kennedy. "Whether it's the fear of getting caught breaking the law, or the realization that many networks could damage your home PC, attitudes are changing."

    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

    Really don't think so Jamie? I do. All the kids who were downloading stuff with Kazaa, does damage your network, and a lot of parents aren't too keen on the idea of condoning their kids stealing. Bring in the iPod factor and how many people buy songs from them and them only because it's "easier". I think it has slowed down.

    I hear a lot less now about people downloading or even using file sharing programs. Hell, a couple/few years ago everybodys uncle was using kazaa, and generally the full blown spyware ridden version. That's over for the most part. Sure, a lot of us still use things like bittorrents and shareaza, but it's the fringe use that is really making the numbers drop. my nickels worth at least
