Ha! Ha! And ha!

Oh, what a shock, music sales have gone up in the UK over the last year, and that's not even counting legal download sales.

The number of legal downloads sold in the UK this year has now exceeded two million units, the BPI said. This means sales have increased from a rate of 100,000 per month to 500,000 per month over the past quarter.

Excuse my smugness, but what did I say about downloads affecting sales?
I hope this means the beginning of the end of the music industry's usual stupidness over downloads and P2P. Quit whining, embrace new techology and start looking for ways to create more value for money instead of trying to force people to buy the crap you've been churning out for year upon year in the assumption that music lovers don't notice.
