MP3 download debate continues

The debate over whether MP3 downloading helps or hurts CD sales continues. Edison Research also found that 19% of consumers who had purchased a CD in the past year had been influenced to do so by an MP3 download, and 17% by the Internet in general. While this influence is significant, it is far below the impact of other media such as radio and music video channels, word of mouth and live performances.
