Even though legal digital downloads are fast becoming commonplace, consumers plan to cling to the CD format, according to a Billboard.com poll. Of 2,611 voters, 50% said the shopping experience and owning the physical product will keep the CD as their primary avenue for music purchases.

Another 35% said the future of their music library would likely consist of a mix of downloads and CDs. Just 15% said the convenience of downloading would make it their primary legal music source.
