Quick: Name the Music Piracy Capital of the World
It’s…Gainesville, Florida? Really?
According to the latest report on music piracy around the planet by the Digital Muiscal Index, no city steals as much music as Gainesville.
In second place is Albany, Georgia, followed by Fairbanks, Alaska, Lexington, Kentucky and Talahassee, Florida. And yes, the US leads in illegal downloads.
The second-worst offending country is the UK with Manchester being the worst offender, followed by Nottingham and Southampton.
What do all these cities have in common? Large (or at least relatively large) university and college populations.
