You are correct. The speculation that Napster drove sales up can not be definitively proved, one way or the another. Likewise if music sales slump after Napster is shut down, correlating the two events would be next to impossible.

I can only prove that I have bought more music because of Napster. From my own Napster experience, I would not be surprised to see other Napster users with similar experiences.

I will postulate that even if I could prove it the major record companies would categorically deny it.
