Just a quick comment ...

... on another of yesterday's news stories: In an NY Times article about a study suggesting that music downloading doesn't actually hurt music sales, the music industry's reply is quoted as asking "If file sharing has no negative impact on the purchasing patterns of the top selling records, how do you account for the fact that, according to SoundScan, the decrease of Top 10 selling albums in each of the last four years is: 2000, 60 million units; 2001, 40 million units; 2002, 34 million units; 2003, 33 million units?"

Um, I dunno, maybe the top 10 selling albums increasingly sucked over the last 4 years?
