35% OF ALL CDS ARE ILLEGAL COPIES
More evidence that fake CD's, not P2P, is the REAL threat to the music biz. If the CD piracy rate is true, "as an industry you're doing something very, very wrong. Indeed, these numbers are an admission of utterly incompetant corporate mismanagement and misfocused businesses plans. In the real world, this sort of malfeasance invariably results in management shakeups and corporate reorganizations, with the irresponsible parties given the sack."
