The idea of this legal campaign is intimidation, not recovery. And in that goal, the RIAA has been ruthlessly successful.

data or personal impressions
If you measure trends in sales$ not percentages it's still at a downward spiral. BTW legal downloads is still a fraction of CD physical sales.

Data. Websites shut down, takedown policies of major sites (like You Tube), death of major file sharing sites. Sales are dropping for sure, but not because of RIAA's desperate attempts to prop up a flawed and obsolete system of IP and distribution, but rather because of the obsolescence of the old system.

I believe there is an increase in illegal download /upload sites. torrents, other sharing networks, and even Russian sites had w/simple web searches. Sure CD sales is dropping IE total legal sales. Besides CDs the even better alternatives (legal DL's best) are increasing at a rate that will be a long, long, time coming to match the old CD peaks in units.
IMO either people are consuming much less or getting what they want via other means that can't tracked reliably by the watch dogs that are quoting wonky percentage #s to justify their own pathetic existance.

I want to buy new music. In SACD format if possible, if not, DVD-A. If not, at minimum HDCD format.
But what is released now it is borderline garbage. In content and in mastering quality.
That's their real problem, not the filesahring.

To hell with the RIAA I say. The orginization is geared towards excploitation anyway.

Default Data what Data?

I really don't believe people are consuming less! it'd be very revealing by just looking at one example
to chart the storage capacity of MP3 players (Ipod and all the others) sold alongside of reported legal DL and CD sales VS year by year.
