Among U.S. music downloaders older than 12, iTunes brand recognition was at 66%, up from 57% in 2005. Napster dropped a bit from 79% to 68%, while Yahoo Music increased somewhat from 49% to 53%. But the biggest gain was MySpace, which increased its brand recognition as a digital music provider from 16% in 2005 to 54% at the end of last year.MySpace is the one that really sticks out here. I have downloaded music from MySpace, but typically there are far fewer downloads there than one might think. I would love to see how people got these stats since MySpace is a place where people may listen to music, but download... ehhh.
