Very good point D.Jones.
An interesting thing to look at, would be to see what is being downloaded.
I suspect, the majority of illegal downloading is done by the under eighteens, therefore , this will not be acceptable in chart format, surely.
Are the over 50`s, downloading Deep Purple/Floyd for their i-pods, having already had them first on vinyl then cd and now mp3??Three copies of "Smoke on the water" in a single life.....genius marketing....

The top stuff being downloaded illegally does tend to be Top 20 material, for the moment. Could I speculate that the older folk are not interested in saving those 99 cents and prefer convenience?

Good speculation,Michael, but it is also worth throwing into the debating ring,that, the older generation may well be re-buying their old records off e-bay.
This of course, will not chart either.

There's another advantage (for the record companies):
Try selling your iTunes-downloads (paid and owned) at eBay or Record & Tape Exchange

Thats an interesting one D.J.
How could the payment be collected, and would the file be transferred and the payment be made via Paypal?
Also? If downloads are re-sold over the internet, do they count twice as sale, as correct downloads, which are legal, are , I believe tagged in some way, as to be traced.Like it, a very interesting point.

Is should be like it is in the "real" world (physical CDs).

You bought a copy, you own it and you can sell it -without any pay to artists, labels or writers.

But - the important point is - with downloads the buyer doesn't own the track he (or she) bought.

At iTunes (or similar shops) you only get licenses (rights).
