They're going to measure it in sales. If sales go up, less people are  
pirating. I know that's not true, but they will pretend it is. After  
all, increasing sales is the only thing that matters. "We had 500,000  
customers last quarter and 600,000 this quarter. 100,000 less people  
are pirating music." rather than saying, "We encouraged 100,000 more  
people to buy our music because we actually put out a good record."
