Someone finally came to their senses.

One major US record label finally admitted that digital downloads aren't hurting their record sales.

EMI is crediting downloads for a 13 per cent increase in profits despite falling sales of physical products.

While I'm not much of one for buying digital music online (I like to buy the physical disc when I can - and rip it so I can play it on my iPod), I have bought a few things from the iTunes Music Store, and it has been fine with me.

Its kind of like when the home cassette recorder was going to ruin the record industry. Or VHS was going to ruin home movie sales. Hoorah for FUD!
