Illegal Downloaders Spend More on Music

Is it really a surprise that those who download the most music illegally also spend more on music? BoingBoing.net’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.
