Re: That's not what the study says at all ...
Let's do the math quickly.
Person on P2P:
2000 songs * 38% = 760 purchases.
Person not on P2P:
1300 songs * 45% - 582 purchases.
760 is indeed greater than 582. This would naturally lead to the conclusion that the average person on P2P spent more money on his/her collection than the average non-P2P user. The does, of course, start getting murky if the study considers used CD/DVD shops to be legitimate sources - as the MPAA and RIAA don't see any profit from sales in those places.
On the surface, though, it would appear that the average P2P user has spent more money overall than the average non-P2P user.

in the eyes of the MAFIAA the used media shopper is worse than a pirate. Mainly because they can sue a pirate, buying used CDs is not illegal........ Yet.
