P2P usage stats

Recent data shows the RIAA’s stepped up efforts have had an impact on file sharing. July statistics from Nielsen//NetRatings showed that traffic dropped on P2P networks more than 15 percent in the first week after the RIAA issued its lawsuit warning.

A recent study issued by market research firm The NPD Group said households acquiring music files online illegally reached a high of 14.5 million in April of 2003, but that the number dropped off to 12.7 million households in May, followed by another drop to 10.4 million households in June.
