About this product
- DescriptionWith the rising popularity of online music, the nature of the music industry is rapidly changing. Rather than buying albums, tapes, or CDs, music shoppers can purchase just one song at a time. It's akin to putting a coin into a diner jukebox-except the jukebox is out in cyberspace. But has increasing copyright protection gone too far in keeping the music from the masses? The authors show how the online music industry will establish the model for digital distribution, cultural access, and consumer privacy. Digital Music Wars explores the far-reaching implications of downloading music in an in-depth and insightful way.
