Ninety-five per cent of music downloaded online is illegal, a report by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) has said.
The global music trade body said this is its biggest challenge as artists and record companies miss out on payments.
There has, however, been a 25% rise since last year with downloads now accounting for a fifth of all recorded music sales.
The IFPI said worldwide music market revenues shrank by 7% last year.
This was blamed on falling CD sales, while the increase in digital sales failed to make up for this.
The IFPI, which represents 1,400 companies in 72 countries, estimated more than 40 billion music files were illegally shared in 2008.
There were 1.4 billion single tracks legally downloaded in 2008, with the top-selling digital single, Lil Wayne's Lollipop, selling 9.1 million copies. There is a momentous debate going on about the environment on which our business, and all the people working in it, depends
John Kennedy, IFPI
BBC technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones said that despite the launch of many legal download services, customers still seemed to prefer to get their music free online.
The report revealed that the digital music business has grown steadily during the past six years.
In 2008, it grew by an estimated 25% and is now worth $3.7bn (£2.5bn)
Music fans in the UK downloaded 110 million single tracks in 2008 and bought 10.3 million digital albums - accounting for 7.7% of the market.
John Kennedy, chairman and chief executive of IFPI, said the industry had changed its approach to doing business.
He said: "There is a momentous debate going on about the environment on which our business, and all the people working in it, depends.
"Governments are beginning to accept that, in the debate over 'free content' and engaging ISPs in protecting intellectual property rights, doing nothing is not an option if there is to be a future for commercial digital content."
We would like to congratulate Society 1 for starting off the year!!
I hope everyone has enjoyed this year and even though there have been quite a bit of deaths, we can hope that 2009 brings us a lot more than this year did.
Congrats go out to Holopain for rounding out the year of 2008 with a bang!
Go there to check out a tune from him and also check his page out, he is on the front.

EVERY Artist/Band on the Calendar will submit an Original song for the compilation CD and I want to thank everyone that has so far as well as the pics.
I'm glad the calendar is filled guys, thank you all and I can't wait for this to be in my hand. ;o) Thanks to Holopain, Dope of Gods and Line Work I have 10 pre-orders.
Get your pre-orders in so I can gauge how many to make because they are limited.
Also I would like to note that RandomWalk is November's Band.
The Months that are taken are as follows: [the pictures need to be the size of: 2856 X 2142]
January = Holopain
February = Line Work
March = Crystal Sunshine
April = Spooky
May = Dirt [From Society 1]
June = ADPR
August = The Pusher
October = Phestur
One of the unnamed months will be taken by SOCIETY 1, I will let you know when I find out.
ALSO: I would like to thank Spooky for helping with this project as well as Holopain giving ADPR the same idea as this year; Make a compilation disc from each Artist/Band on the calendar to go with the calendar when it sells.
THANK YOU seems too little of what I should be saying to everyone.
Keep checking back for more info.
Today is a new day and I am feeling pretty good. I [and a cohort] have come up with an idea that I am sure you guys will enjoy.
I want to see submissions to my EMAIL email@example.com and I want in it the BEST photo of you as an Artist or the whole Band or even a Record Exec.
ADPR is making a calendar for the 2010 year [2009 if we can get everything done in time] of all of YOU guys. Again to be on the Calendar, they have to be good looking quality pictures and then ADPR will announce the 13 winners as it will be a 13 month calendar.
Some on guys, this is the opportunity to have yourselves plastered in permanency for everyone out there to see when they buy a calendar and see YOU on it.
Lance King, the owner of Nightmare Records is one person I am looking for on this one. He is the epitome of Rock and Roll.
What are you waiting for, go on and submit your pics!!!
ALSO to let you know, all the money made from calendar sales are going to be heading to the Saint Judes Childrens Cancer Center!
