[dvd-discuss] Record Sales are Down - Piracy To Blame

On the news this morning there was a brief segment on the woes of the 
Recording industry.

In 2000, they sold 783 Million Recordings
In 2001, the number PLUMMETED to 768 Million 


Miriah Carey is blamed for part of that. Her last album was not a 9M+ 
seller but a flop. But the big blame was PIRACY which the number of 
pirated CDs equals the actual number sold.Yeah...I know...a 2% drop in 
sales during a recession equates to 100% piracy. I don't know what cracker 
jack box they got all this out of but I'd bet that's where whomever came 
up with it got his diploma.
