The term MP3 conjures up a great many different thoughts and feelings. To some the creation and proliferation of the MP3 music file has meant the ability to transport a vast music collection on devices no bigger than a deck of cards. It has meant the ability to listen to music that until several years ago would have not been readily available to the average consumer. To others, the MP3 represents one of the biggest challenges in business models and retaining business revenue their industry has seen. To both collectives however, the MP3 has links to the topic of digital piracy.
