ABSTRACT
Anyone listening to Internet radio stations or other online sounds is familiar with the frequent need to choose between format and player. This is not a technological issue: the various sound formats all provide acceptable quality. Instead, we have a battle between a set of companies that think the best way to dominate the online music business is to tie the format and player together to lock in customers. We?re in the middle of a contest to see whether one company can dominate the legal downloading business by controlling the format in which music is sold.
INDEX TERMS
