33% Of Internet Users Paid For Digital Music Online

image from www.onedigitallife.comAccording to the results of a survey conducted by The Pew Internet organization, 33% of Internet users have paid for digital music online. It's hard to say. Is this newly released statistic surprising or upsetting? At first, it's impressive to think that anyone buys digital music, considering the prevalence of file-sharing. Then again, it's upsetting that the number isn't a bit higher.
