Online Music Piracy Doesn’t Hurt Sales, European Commission Finds New research published by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre shows that online piracy doesn't hurt digital music revenues.

The aim of this foresight activity is to contribute to this vision building process by providing a range of imaginative visions on the key components of creative and innovative learning in Europe in 2020.
