Speaking at a news conference to launch the report, IFPI chairman and CEO John Kennedy said that legal downloading in the U.K. and Germany from such sites as iTunes, Musicload and MSN exceeds that from illegal file sharing. „Predictions are always dodgy, but I do believe that by 2010, digital music will comprise 25% of global revenues,” Kennedy said.
„This is great news for the digital music market and the wider digital economy. Record companies are licensing their music prolifically and diversely. A new wave of digital commerce, from mobile to broadband, is rolling out across the world,” Kennedy said.
