Swedish performing rights society STIM has released a report called Pirates, File-Sharers and Music Users, which reports that more than 86% of respondents would be interested in paying a voluntary fee for legal P2P (that’s 52% who are “very interested” and 35% who are “somewhat interested”). Only 5% had no interest in such a scheme. So how much would people pay a month? 51.8% said they’d pay between SEK 50 and SEK 150 a month ($5.84 – $17.53), while 18.8% would consider paying SEK 150 – SEK 300 ($17.53 – $35.08). Meanwhile, 21.7% said they would pay less than SEK 50 a month.Another finding of the report is that streaming services can’t quite replace downloads – 80.5% said collecting music and having access to it offline are important to them.
