BBC NEWS | Technology | iPod fans ‘shunning iTunes store’:

They estimate that during 2006 Europeans will spend more than 385m euros (£260m) on digital music – the majority of this spending will be on tracks from Apple’s iTunes store. However, the report into the habits of iPod users reveals that 83% of iPod owners do not buy digital music regularly. The minority, 17%, buy and download music, usually single tracks, at least once per month. On average, the study reports, only 5% of the music on an iPod will be bought from online music stores. The rest will be from CDs the owner of an MP3 player already has or tracks they have downloaded from file-sharing sites.
