Music Consumption Behavior of Generation Y and the Reinvention of the Recording Industry

This paper will give an overview of the last 15 years of the recording industry’s problems with piracy and decreasing sales, while reporting on research into the music consumption behavior of a group of audio students in both the United States and in eight European countries. Audio students have a unique perspective on the issues surrounding the recording industry’s problems since the advent of Napster and the later generations of illegal file sharing. Their insights into issues like the importance of access to music, the quality of the listening experience, and the ethical quandary of participating in copyright infringement, may help point to a direction for the future of the recording industry.
