Legal Music Downloads

The music industry has been saying the same thing for several years now: peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks are exponentially distributing pirated music across the world through the Internet, and this constitutes a copyright infringement.

At this time music was recorded on records. In the late 1940s the reel-to-reel format for recording music was commercially developed. Eventually simpler reel-to-reel recorders were made available for home use. These recorders remained popular through the 1970s because of the superior quality of open reel recordings. Eight-track magnetic tape sound recording technology became popular in the mid-1960s. Most of us baby-boomers had 8-track players and tons of those huge cartridges. The cassette recorder was introduced in 1963. These cassette decks soon came into widespread use and were the preferred music source for the automobile. Like the 8-track cartridges, they were relatively insensitive
