Good article about MP3 format. I particularly like the question about piracy and MP3's.

"Music piracy is not a real thing. In fact, it's a crazy term because it combines people in their rooms downloading music with armed thieves in boats off the coast of eastern Africa."

The music industry calls them pirates so citizens won't side with them.

Which is why the music industry itself is ripe for disruption.

Thanks for this article, Nick!
