    This is really interesting! In the presentation, I saw that the Philippines is second to the highest in the whole world in terms of piracy, when its population is less than half of China (who takes the first place)! In my defense though, as a person from the Philippines, I’ve tried purchasing music online, only to find a message that says something like “Your country is not supported by our online stores at this time”. Added to that, many of the recordings I like and have seen in music blogs, etc. aren’t available in our record stores (sadly, we have a limited selection). What’s a music lover to do but turn to the most accessible resources?

    Now as both a consumer and a musician, if the “record industry” gets revolutionized in a way which will really benefit the artist and the user, that will really make me happy.

    Great presentation! Thanks for sharing.

    The IFPI Digital Music Report 2008 shows that digital music revenues went from 400 million dollars in 2004 to 2.4 billion dollars in 2007, or from 2 per cent market share to 15 per cent market share, and the trend is for digital music to gain terrain. The top three artists in this category come from three different countries and had more than 21 million specific digital downloads for one of their songs. This trend is clearly observable when analyzing the research done by the IFPI.

    I think that CDs will not become obsolete. Still, record companies need to find a way to make buying a record an experience. For sure it will stay an experience for hardcore record fans, like we can observe today with vinyl lovers.
