Music industry worried about CD burning

AP: Music copied onto blank recordable CDs is becoming a bigger threat to the bottom line of record stores and music labels than online file-sharing, said Mitch Bainwol, CEO for the Recording Industry Association of America, this Friday.
The data, compiled by the market research firm NPD Group, suggested that about half of all recordings obtained by music fans in 2004 were due to authorized CD sales and about 4% from paid music downloads.
Copy protection technology "is an answer to the problem that clearly the marketplace is going to see more of," he added.
