Digital music study
A statement from Russ Crupnick, president of NPD's Music and Movies division supports Apple CEO Steve Jobs' idea that legal digital music sales with low pricing are during the first half of this year with more than 155 million tracks downloaded from legal digital music services, such as Apple's iTunes Music Store. NPD research suggests nearly seven in 10 households have experienced digital music in one form or another, and 69-percent of internet-using households have at least one digital music file on their home PC. NPD also suggests the average computer music user has 340 music files in his or her digital music library, up 24-percent when compared to the same period last year.
