Dead market for digital goods

China, with a population of 1.3 billion, purchased 244 legitimate copies of Windows Vista in the 2 weeks after it launched there. Pirated copies sell for $1 on the street.

I'm certain it's no different for any other digital media product--CD's, DVDs, any other software. I'm doubtful China will be a viable market for any digital good in my lifetime.
