      European sales fell by 23%.
      Spanish sales dropped 43%.
      The market is 38% of its value in 2001.
      *(IFPI, 2010)
    • Music Industry features
      The “Big Four” control the 91% of the market.
      The rest of the pie (9%) is divided among the independent labels.
      *(FEDEA, 2010)
    • Main industry bodies

      *(IFPI, 2010)
    • Online piracy
      A total of 8.6 million* users are engaged in illegal file-sharing.
      32% of Internet users frequently downloading illegal music from P2P sites. More than double of the European average (15%)*.
      Recently, a new report from IDC Research showed that 96% of all recorded music acquired online in Spain is pirated (2010).
      Main causes:
      29.1 million Internet users (72% of the population).
      Economic recession.
      Legal vacuum.
      Physical piracy rate has dropped to 10% in 2009
      *(IIIPA 2010)
    • IMPACT
      In 2009 total value of the market set at $246 millions (-14,3%).
      “For every ten copies bought in Spain at the beginning of the decade, today's fans will take home only three” (Economista, 2010).
      Decline of investment
      While 10 domestic new acts would be signed by a major in 2005, today only 3 or 4 are signed.
      In 2009, no presence of new acts on the top 50.
      *(IFPI, 2010)
    • Best selling albums 2009
      Only the top 3 acts managed to sell more than 100.000 copies
      *(IFPI, 2010)
    • Response to the current scenario
      Government developed “The Sinde Law”
      A provision aimed to regulate copyright and intellectual property rights on the Internet.
      Websites offer illegal material to download will be targeted, through a Commission (IPC) depending on the Culture Ministry.
      Legal vacuum
      Previous cases judges argued P2Ps do not infringe the law, because content is shared without a “commercial profit”.
      The law allows to make private copies of copyrighted work without the author's consent for published works if the copy is not for commercial use.
      The provision is in “limbo” until next year
    • Live music: good news
      In 2009, live music reached a profit of US$ 367.4 million vs US$ 246 million from the recorded music sales.
      In 2000 21.8 million viewers while in 2008 more than 33 million.
      In 2000, 71,045 concerts took place in Spain, whilst in 2008 the numbers doubled to 144, 859 concerts.
      During the same period, ticket’s price has raised 75%.
      *(IFPI, 2010)
    • The future
      Physical sales will keep dropping during 2010 (A recent research shows -12% duringthe 1st semester).
      Live music revenues will not grow due to the economic hardship.
      Less investment = more difficult to develop new talent= no international acts.
      Established acts are focusing on other territories (Latin America/North America). They are adapting these international patterns to succeed.
      Legal solution on the way?
    • Thanks!!!!!!
