But interestingly it’s the Internet pirates that end up spending the most money on legal content.

So if they got rid of the pirates the media moguls would be worse off.
Maybe the majority of people are just "sampling" products and when they find something they like they end up buying it.

When you look at items such as films and music it is a bit different

The top 10% of "infringers" spent more than non "infringers" in every case except computer software.
Even in that case it was only by a small amount.
