The Sky Is Rising!

This very interesting report was presented recently. It seems that, contrary to popular belief, the Internet and Internet-piracy has not hurt the entertainment industry. The bottom line is that revenues have in fact doubled in the last 5 years. The report looks at people like Paulo Coelho, who in fact encouraged or even urged Internet users to "steal" his books.

If you don't have the patience to read the entire report (it's over 30 pages long) at least look at the infographic - the stats are surprising to say the least.
