Purchase, Pirate, Publicize: The Effect of File Sharing on Album Sales - 0 views

  •  
    "Author Info Jonathan Lee () (Queen's University) Registered author(s): Abstract This paper quantifies the relationship between private-network file sharing activity and music sales in the BitTorrent era. Using a panel dataset of 2,251 albums' U.S. sales and file sharing downloads on a private network during 2008, I estimate the effect of file sharing on album sales. Exogenous shocks to file sharing capacity address the simultaneity problem. In theory, piracy could crowd out legitimate sales by building file sharing capacity, but could also increase sales through word-of-mouth. I find evidence that additional file sharing decreases physical sales but increases digital sales for top-tier artists, though the effects are modest. I also find that file sharing may help mid-tier artists and substantially harms bottom-tier artists, suggesting that file sharing enables consumers to better discern quality among lesser-known artists."

    "They Might Be Giants have released a 47-minute, 19-track recording of their First Album Live tour for free. The Giants took their 1986 breakout album ("the pink album") out on tour in 2013, performing it along with Avatars of They, an all-puppet TMBG tribute band, to enthusiastic crowds around the world. The free download is a gift to their fans, and it is every bit as great as it was in 1986 and 2013. First Album Live"
