There was a quite surprising article on the Inq last week.

They picked up that while sales of CD are dropping, sales of the good old fashioned LPs have increased by ten percent in 2006!
The increase in sales, while traditional CDs have fallen, is being touted as a backlash against the recording labels installing DRM onto CDs.

While some still think that the sound quality on LPs was better, there was also the technological advantage that you could do what you liked with it. You could install a turntable on your computer, listen to the music on any stereo you like, and copy it onto CD so you can take it with you on your car. All things that the music industry says is piracy.
