Legal Downloading soon to surpass piracy

So maybe all those people who said that if there was a legal way to download just what they want for a reaonable price were actually telling the truth?

Though I suspect a lot of it is simply who is downloading music, previously it was the domain of college kids and teenagers downloading songs by the thousands rather then buying overpriced CDs that they couldn't afford, now as more and more adults get into the whole MP3 thing they are both more conscious of the ethical implications of piracy and have more money in which to spend on legal MP3s, and perhaps less technical savvy then many youth and thus the concerns of viruses etc. is higher.
