The CD Ain't Dead Yet

A recent survey by the University of Western Sydney found that over two-thirds of "music lovers" preferred to buy original CDs from a store, even though pirated copies are extensively available on the Internet.  The study involved 100 "baby boomers" and 100 members of "Generation Y," described as persons aged 14 to 29.  38% of the respondents did admit to downloading pirated music, however.  The survey indicated that a clear majority of music lovers enjoy having the commercially-produced CD and packaging, and also enjoy getting the newest music.  The problem for the recording industry --- 54% of Generation Y downloaded pirated music, compared to just 10% for the baby boomers.
