There's a lot more after the break.
TorrentFreak reports that P2P music downloaders decreased by 43% since this time last year. Based on a survey by the NPD Group of over 5,000 Americans, the number of music pirates dropped from about 28 million to just about 16 million in a year.
However on the other hand, the market share for other programs like FrostWire went up after LimeWire shut down. In this year, the share of FrostWire went up from 10% to 21%.
