Notes: The study by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry estimated that in China 85% of music sold was pirated. In Indonesia the figure was 80% and Mexico, Russia, and Ukraine were all cited as having piracy rates of 60% or higher. 31 countries were estimated to have larger pirated-music markets than commercial ones.
