Global music sales dipped in 2009

May 1, 2010

According to a BBC news report, although global music sales fell by 7% around the world in 2009, the music market in 13 countries, including the UK, grew during the past year, according to data released by recording industry body the IFPI. So, why do the big labels constantly bleat about sales falling and support iniquitous legislation like the recent Digital Economy Act?

Apparently the IFPI say global digital sales registered a strong increase across many markets in 2009. In a number of markets, digital sales rocketed by up to 40%. So next time they wring their hands in the mass media, ignore them.
