Aussies dubbed the worst music pirates in the world
A recent report reveals that Australians are some of the greatest embracers of music streaming.
The arrival of services like Spotify and Rdio have led to extraordinary growth in streaming in 2012. In fact, streaming sales grew a whopping 232% to nearly $3million dollars worth last financial year.
Piracy, however, remains a problem, with Aussies illegally downloading nearly 200million songs in the first half of 2012 alone.
Indeed, they’re calling us the “worst offenders in the world”.
I guess remnants of our ex-convict roots are still in the blood…
