Gawd - talk about shooting yourself from the foot up toward the groin - these "illegal" file sharers are actually their best customers. Nice job, guys.

"People who illegally share music files online are also big spenders on legal music downloads, research suggests.
Digital music research firm The Leading Question found that they spent four and a half times more on paid-for music downloads than average fans.

According to the music industry, legal downloads have tripled during 2005."
