 "Contrary to the music industry Chicken Littles, the sky is not falling
down. 
After several years warning of dire consequences for record companies
becauseof rampant music downloading and copying, the Australian Record
Industry Association yesterday released sales figures for 2003 showing an
increase of nearly 8 per cent. 
Album sales topped 50 million units, up from nearly 47 million in 2002. But
even more dramatic was the increase in music DVDs where sales doubled in the
year to nearly 5 million units. 
Between them, albums and DVDs generated sales of a very healthy $646
million,up from $609.5 million."
