All is Fair in Love and War

Why is that, despite taking legal action against hundred of scared teenagers across the globe for supposed music piracy via file swapping networks, many of the big music companies pay for market research information from a company which specialises in monitoring the popularity of songs on those networks? Apparently they find it invaluable intelligence when mapped with other statistics such as airplay. So if a particular song is played on the radio, they can then check the ratings on the networks like Kazaa. Just supporting the notion that at the end of the day this is all about money, and when money is the focus, as always, all is fair in love and war.
