Transition away from pre-recorded CD's slow

According to a recent report issued by Research Analyst John Barrett of Parks Associates, consumers' transition away from pre-recorded CDs into digital music files will be slower than many are indicating. The report sheds light on a large percentage of users that download and upload casually, not handling massive amounts of tracks and burning multiple CDs daily. This crowd, often outside the closely tracked teenager set, still prefers the ease of the pre-recorded CD over the relatively new rules surrounding digital music tracks. The report also projects winners and losers in the space, noting that brick-and-mortar and pre-recorded CD sellers will eventually lose in the long run after an extended period of bleeding.
