+ - After strict laws reduce piracy, French music industry is still in decline->

Submitted by Hentes
Hentes (2461350) writes "France has one of the strictest anti-piracy law. After 17 months of operation, Hadopi released a report, claiming that illegal P2P downloads have been reduced significantly in the country: the studies they cite measured 43% and 66% decrease in copyright infringement. But that huge amount of "lost revenue" doesn't seem to show up in the French recording industry, as the overall recorded music market has decreased by 3.9% in 2011. Even more interesting is that digital music sales have skyrocketed in France. Could it be that it's not piracy killing the traditional recording industry but digital distribution?"
