Illegal Downloaders Spend More on Music

Is it really a surprise that those who download the most music illegally also spend more on music?’s Cory Doctorow says,

“…People who are music superfans do more of everything to do with music: they see more live shows, listen to more radio, buy more CDs, buy more botlegs of live shows, buy more t-shirts, talk about music more, do more downloading — all of it.”

So tell me again why the music industry is targeting and prosecuting their biggest consumers?

I find it funny that someone had to do a study to figure that one out.  It seems pretty obvious that those who illegally download the most music are also those who end up spending the most on music.
