Beyond the Charts: MP3 and the Digital Music Revolution
This book takes a look at the shocking war being waged over your CD collection, a struggle that will determine who controls popular music - and to a large extend, popular culture - in the coming years. It's a battle of multinational corporate giants versus Internet entrepeneurs working out of their bedrooms, challenging the fat cats who have built fortunes on the bones of underpaid musicians. It's also a war for the hearts and minds of a new generation and a culture that doesn't feel the need to hold a plastic disc in its hands to enjoy music.
