LSE Media Policy Project: Media policy brief 1Creative destruction and copyright protection 
Key Messages
o
The DEA gets the balance between copyright enforcement andinnovation wrong. The use of peer-to-peer technology should beencouraged to promote innovative applications. Focusing onefforts to suppress the use of technological advances and toprotect out-of-date business models will stifle innovation in thisindustry.
o
Providing user-friendly, hassle-free solutions to enable users todownload music legally at a reasonable price, is a much moreeffective strategy for enforcing copyright than a heavy-handedlegislative and regulatory regime.
o
Decline in the sales of physical copies of recorded music cannotbe attributed solely to file-sharing, but should be explained by acombination of factors such as changing patterns in musicconsumption, decreasing disposable household incomes forleisure products and increasing sales of digital content throughonline platforms.
