The 2008 Digital Music Survey from Entertainment Media Research has found that for the first time the majority of music downloaders are using legal means, writes Netimperative. 51% of consumers now use legal download services, up 9% from 47% in 2007. The growth in legal downloading is predominantly being driven by older music fans with 39% of over-45s and 44% of 35-44 year-olds now using legitimate services (from 28% and 36% respectively). 40% of over-35s are now buying music downloads at least once a month. The survey also found that the number of illegal music downloaders in the UK has dropped by 10%.
