Apparently 38 percent of people still pirate their music

For reasons I can’t quite wrap my head around, 38 percent of people still pirate music, a new study has found. Yes that’s right, even in 2018, where we have free access to an endless library of streamable music, people are still illegally downloading.

Kleptomania? Perhaps, yes. Like smuggling chips into the cinema, I guess people still get a kick out of mildly cheating the system.

A new report has found that 38 percent of people still pirate their music, and we’ve got question… who the fuck are you people?

In a new report released by The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), it was noted that a whopping 38 percent of people still acquire their music via copyright infringement.

People still like free stuff, so it doesn’t surprise us that there are a lot of people engaged in this. And it’s relatively easy to pirate music, which is a difficult thing for us to say,” IFPI Director David Price told The Guardian.
