One of the first things I though when confronted with the Hollywood “ooh we’re losing money to piracy”-tune was that I’d like to see a comparative study with the rise of DVD-sales as well. Simply because I certainly not have the budget to continue buyng CDs and to buy DVDs at the same time, and I doubt others have.
Well, well. Ars Technica reports… A new study in the Journal of Political Economy finds no correlation between piracy and falling CD-sales. Surprise?
And then: punch-card computing is back again. Perhaps. Or not. But hey, sounds cool doesn’t it?
