The Null Device
While the recording industry goliaths struggle to replace MP3 with
copyright-enforcing audio formats that maintain their control over music
distribution, the Fraunhofer Institute, who own the MP3 patents, may be
helping them, by demanding payment for all MP3 players and downloads
There is an open-source alternative, Vorbis, but without the momentum of MP3,
it should be easier to persuade a judge that it is a "circumvention mechanism",
and thus against new digital copyright laws. Then again, marijuana is also
illegal, and nobody smokes that, right?
