Jupiter projects $30 million in digital distribution

Published on .

In a new report, Jupiter Communications predicts that sales of music via digital distribution will reach only $30 million, or about 2%, of total online music sales ($1.4 billion) by 2002. Digital distribution, in which a consumer purchases and downloads music directly from the Web, is now being held up because of security issues and concerns from record label companies that consumers will download albums and then distribute them at will, according to Jupiter.
