Sales of Music, Long in Decline, Plunge Sharply - WSJ.com

Think different... 

In a dramatic acceleration of the seven-year sales decline that has battered the music industry, compact-disc sales for the first three months of this year plunged 20% from a year earlier, the latest sign of the seismic shift in the way consumers acquire music.
