Compared to music buyers, music sharers (pirates) are…

* 31% more likely to buy single tracks online.
* 33% more likely to buy music albums online.
* 100% more likely to pay for music subscription services.

* 60% more likely to pay for music on mobile phone.

And 100% more likely to be pissed of by the record companies cherry picking polls to blame them for the decline in physical sales.
