Strange because when I read them they definitely included details of each reports major findings. And asking a relatively small number of people a number of questions and then extrapolating the results to a bigger group is kind of how studies work. As long as the original small group contains enough people to be sufficiently randomised then the results can be taken to apply to a larger group well enough. Anyway the point still stands that studies have been conducted by reputable bodies which have concluded that people who download music end up buying more music overall. Gee, that's a suprise. A record label, who are desperate for people to go back to how they used to buy music 10-15 years ago, dispute the claims that piracy isn't the cause for the drop in music revenue. Because obviously they're the sort of people who are well known for introspective analysis of their business practices and are always keen to embrace new ideas and technologies. And you started so well with the apology. I don't recall admitting anywhere that I have stolen (not that piracy is theft no matter how much you try to wedge it in there). And btw that's not an admission that i've been involved in piracy either.
