I talked with the Marketing Intel team. We could store bitrate and try to calculate something based on that. We aren't currently storing bitrate. This isn't a lot of development; it's just adding another field to a database and recording what we already see but are currently throwing away about bitrate.
What you want we might be able to show using file names. Different file names for the same mp3 suggest that they're different rips too. The file name route is probably easier to show, because we're already tracking filenames.
Let me/Jay know what you want to do.

Do we have any data that shows the number of unique rips of a popular song or album on p2p and/or their bitrates? I'm trying to convince SonyBMG that selling mp3s on itunes will not add to the piracy problem because mp3s on p2p are duplicates of the original leaked content which of course is on p2p before itunes sales and is higher quality. She is wondering if we have any data that shows this.
