* File-sharers are big spenders too *

A survey finds that people who download music illegally also spend more
buying tunes legitimately.

[excerpt]

People who download music illegally also spend an average of £77 a year
buying it legitimately, a survey has found.

Those who claimed not to use peer-to-peer filesharing sites such as The
Pirate Bay spent a yearly average of just £44.

Almost one in 10 of those questioned aged between 16 and 50 said they
downloaded music illegally.

However, eight out of 10 of that group also bought CDs, vinyl and as MP3s.
