|[#1] RIAA 2010 report
"The obvious fact is that the trend we've been observing since the last five years is confirmed: physical media sales go down (globally) while music downloads go up rapidly (-21.8% and +2.3% respectively). What's impressive is the drop of the total number of units shipped (this includes EVERY kind of media, physical or not): -6.8% is a frightening percentage (was -3.5% last year). This means people bought less Music, a possible side-effect of the global financial crisis. What's worse is the drop of the so-called total value (i.e. amount of money involved) as this becomes -10.9% (was -12.3% last year): Music is less expensive but customers seem not interested in buying it. Illegal download certainly plays a crucial role here."

How about if you purchased a CD, ripped the music files and then share with a bunch of friends though icloud?
Perhaps that's why there are so many so called 'limited editions' CDs around HK because you really don't have limited editions when you share the music files with icloud.
Btw, what's the trend for people attending live shows?
What I know is that some performing artists are almost out of business in US due to the economic downturn.
