Seems Manchester has the record for the highest number of illegal music downloads in the UK. This is thought to be due to the high number of students living in the area. One young musician sold 2 million tracks but the total number of his tracks downloaded is nearly 9 million. He did not seem too bothered about this but the record companies had a different view and said they have records of all illegal downloads and who is doing the downloading. They were less clear about what they could do about it.
