People who like music spend more money on music - survey

It's been repeated, and found by surveys, so often it barely constitutes 'news', but it's nevertheless timely that a Virgin Media funded survey again reports that people who use unlicensed music also spend more on licensed music, too:

The study - funded by Virgin Media (NSDQ: VMED) - says a third of adults go illegal. But the additional money they spend contributes £200 million to the music economy each year.

The survey only spoke to a 1000 people, but it was carried out by Demos so had a fairly rigorous methodology.
