      Content industry is asserting that their flagging sales is due to piracy.  This is not the first study I have read by independent researchers, versus industry paid studies, that contradicts the content industries position.

      The content industry is failing by compelling people to buy and album full of songs when you only want one song.  This failing was addressed by business like Itunes.  The content industry has been fighting to keep the old business model and not adapting to the newer internet sales models.  This failure harms the consumer, the artists, and music styles in general.

      Forgot to mention that I changed the word from "Research" to "Study" to try to shorten the title.  Failed, but...  Study is appropriate though because I linked to the study as well.
