Music Fans torrent 759 million songs in six months, Gainesville, FL #1

A new report released by MusicMetric--the first of its kind--shows that Americans torrented more than 97 million albums (78%) and singles (22%) during the first half of 2012. At 10 songs per album, that adds up to 759 million songs. The report also named Gainesville, FL, Albany, GA, Fairbanks, AK, Lexington, KY and Tallahassee, FL as the top BitTorrenting areas in America.

By making fun of the Gators during pregame walkthroughs knowing those headphones are playing pirated music?

They can use the rallying cry 'FOR THE RIAA!'

Am I on the wrong side of this?

So it's not stealing because the people who made it are wealthy?

the lines are pretty blurry between playing an album anytime you want (spotify) vs having a 'hard copy' backup you can play whenever you don't have broadband.

A hard copy backup of a subscription service?

You can pay the monthly fee with spotify and use offline mode.


I don't get the people that are proud that they have 50,000 songs. Not like you are listening to them all.

I think spotify is a compromise, but it's drastically better than having someone get your music via torrents.

How is torrents not stealing because the person(s) being stolen from is/are wealthy though? That doesn't make sense.
