Legal music services put small dent in file sharing

updated 07:40 am EST, Mon February 23, 2004

File sharing still popular

with computer users, despite efforts of the RIAA to curtail online music piracy, the Associated Press reports. While a study released in January suggested that 17 million people in the U.S. are sharing music -- half the number that were with six months ago -- experts believe that many of those users have simply migrated to more anonymous or secure services. Additionally, the two million songs downloaded legally in the U.S. last week, mostly from iTunes and Napster, remains far less than the 20-25 million that are estimated to be downloaded illegally each week.
