It is nonetheless ubiquitous and especially advantageous for low-bit rate human speech applications. Compression efficiency of encoders is typically defined by the bit rate, because compression ratio depends on the bit depth and sampling rate of the input signal.
Nevertheless, compression ratios are often published. They may use the Compact Disc CD parameters as references Compression ratios with this latter reference are higher, which demonstrates the problem with use of the term compression ratio for lossy encoders. This song was chosen because of its nearly monophonic nature and wide spectral content, making it easier to hear imperfections in the compression format during playbacks.
Some more critical audio excerpts glockenspiel , triangle , accordion , etc. Some other real time implementation of MPEG Audio encoders and decoders  were available for the purpose of digital broadcasting radio DAB , television DVB towards consumer receivers and set top boxes.
As sound scholar Jonathan Sterne notes, "An Australian hacker acquired l3enc using a stolen credit card. The hacker then reverse-engineered the software, wrote a new user interface, and redistributed it for free, naming it "thank you Fraunhofer"".
A hacker named SoloH discovered the source code of the "dist10" MPEG reference implementation shortly after the release on the servers of the University of Erlangen. He developed a higher-quality version and spread it on the internet. This code started the widespread CD ripping and digital music distribution as MP3 over the internet.
In the second half of the s, MP3 files began to spread on the Internet , often via underground pirated song networks. After some experiments  using uncompressed audio files, this archive started to deliver on the native worldwide low speed Internet some compressed MPEG Audio files using the MP2 Layer II format and later on used MP3 files when the standard was fully completed. The popularity of MP3s began to rise rapidly with the advent of Nullsoft 's audio player Winamp , released in In November , the website mp3.
The first large peer-to-peer filesharing network, Napster , was launched in The ease of creating and sharing MP3s resulted in widespread copyright infringement. Major record companies argued that this free sharing of music reduced sales, and called it " music piracy ". They reacted by pursuing lawsuits against Napster which was eventually shut down and later sold and against individual users who engaged in file sharing.
Unauthorized MP3 file sharing continues on next-generation peer-to-peer networks. An MP3 file is made up of MP3 frames, which consist of a header and a data block.
This sequence of frames is called an elementary stream. Due to the "bit reservoir", frames are not independent items and cannot usually be extracted on arbitrary frame boundaries. The MP3 Data blocks contain the compressed audio information in terms of frequencies and amplitudes.
The diagram shows that the MP3 Header consists of a sync word , which is used to identify the beginning of a valid frame. After this, the values will differ, depending on the MP3 file. The data stream can contain an optional checksum. Joint stereo is done only on a frame-to-frame basis. The MP3 encoding algorithm is generally split into four parts.
Part 1 divides the audio signal into smaller pieces, called frames, and a modified discrete cosine transform MDCT filter is then performed on the output. Part 2 passes the sample into a point fast Fourier transform FFT , then the psychoacoustic model is applied and another MDCT filter is performed on the output. Part 3 quantifies and encodes each sample, known as noise allocation, which adjusts itself in order to meet the bit rate and sound masking requirements.
The operator allegedly employs multiple IP addresses, domain names, and server locations to evade law enforcement. In a German court found an Uploaded operator liable for infringing content shared by its users because it failed to take proactive measure to prevent the same infringing works from being re-uploaded and made available for download again.
Uploaded is owned by a Swiss company and is hosted in the Netherlands. Vibbo, based in Spain, connects users to a wide variety of products and services. Yet, some people use the platform to sell and distribute counterfeit security tags and circumvention devices and services.
In many countries, including Spain, this is in direct violation of the law…. Right holders report that Vibbo is largely non-responsive to notices of infringing activity. However, VK has reached licensing agreements with major recording companies. Furthermore, the site also took steps to limit third-party applications dedicated to downloading infringing content.

I have the lead article published in the April issue of the Journal of Law and Economics which provides a thorough discussion of the history and data used in analyzing file-sharing.
Among other things it demonstrates the close linkage between file-sharing growth and record sales declines using half-year data. It also points out some heretofore unnoticed inconsistencies in these data. For example, what appears to be the best estimate of the number of audio files downloaded reports that files downloaded are generally less than one tenth the amounts of previous estimates.
File-sharing appears to have hit record retailers less severely than it has hit record clubs, causing possible underestimates of harm by those looking at statistics from retailers. Finally, the claims that DVD sales have been responsible for the decline in CD sales for those articles that provide any evidence at all have been based on a statistic that provides a misleading picture of the DVD market.
That issue of the Journal of Law and Economics has a symposium on file-sharing that anyone interested in the subject must read, including articles linked below by Rob and Waldfogel Penn , Zentner UTD and a quartet of economists from the University of Connecticut. The second form of evidence can be found in econometric studies of the industry.
All the econometric studies, except one, find some degree of harm. I have written a paper A version of which appears in Management Science that examines record sales and Internet uses in 99 US cities to measure the impact of file-sharing. While I am partial to my own work, I believe this paper provides the strongest analysis to date of these issues.
The methodology avoids many empirical difficulties found in other papers. It concludes that file-sharing is responsible for the entire decline in record sales that has occurred, and that except for file-sharing there would have been an increase in sales since instead of the strong decline. It also examines which genres had the greatest impact from file-sharing, and they are consistent with intuition genres appealing to older individuals have the smallest sales decline, and vice-versa.
As a by-product of the analysis I examine the impact of general Internet use on time spent with television and radio in order to prevent this Internet effect from contaminating my results. All the papers that I have seen by other economists, except for one notable exception, find some degree of harm to record producers caused by file-sharing.
The lone exception, but the most heavily publicized, is a paper by Oberholzer-Gee and Strumpf , which I believe is littered with errors and disingenuousness as discussed in greater detail below.
I have several articles that look at other papers in the economics literature on file-sharing. It examines the generally unpublished state of the literature theory and empirics on file-sharing. Illing and M. This article, besides updating the literature survey, demonstrated that the concept of network effects had not been properly applied to the impacts of file-sharing since the alternative to file-sharing is likely to be radio listening by those unwilling to pay the purchase price of CDs, whereas the theory usually assumes that downloaders are new listeners who provide new network effects.
My initial study of file-sharing was published in Advances in the Study of Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Economic Growth. That paper looks at a 30 year history of record sales as well as changes in income, prices, sale of blank tapes, videogames, prerecorded cassettes DVDs, possible changes in the interest in music, and changes in the population.
None of these other factors appeared capable of explaining any but a very small percentage of the recent decline in CD sales.
Elsewhere I describe in detail the problems that I have with this paper. There are several recent developments that are newsworthy, however. My comment , written for the JPE, was submitted in September of While it was under submission, Dr.
Norbert Haring, a reporter for, the German business magazine Handelsblatt , contacted me about the comment which he had read on the SSRN. It was just the typical laudatory story about the two economists who had discovered the unusual result that file-sharing did not harm record sales. An English translation of this article is here. The comment was rejected by the JPE in June of The rejection included two referee reports, one very positive and one very negative. I corresponded with Dr.
Haring, sending him the two referee reports and the letter from Steve Levitt, the editor responsible for the decision. Album sales were originally just for exposure.
A necessary exposure to generate long term sales, generally by gaining new fans. Pirating an album for the sake of not spending money is always wrong. But there may be valid exceptions to what law calls piracy and what we morally determine to not be theft.
Is downloading a copyrighted album, which is not offered for free illegal? You bet it is. Downloading the mp3 replacement without paying for the download is technically illegal, despite your legal ownership of an authorized copy and fair use making a personal copy legal. Sometimes the tactics of big brother RIAA, etc. At least with big label companies, both the music and movie industries are consistently seeing the pains of their failures to adapt to what society wants.
Anyone remember Metallica and their Napster suit? Anyone else follow their sales data following that? Sales slumped. Anyone follow what Green Day came up with?
Great for legal mp3 downloads. This is a concept called compromise. Something many of us forget about when we look at the world. The key to this is actually buying a real copy or disposing of the pirated content in a timely manner. Unfortunately, there are also many blatant pirates who use this excuse to justify the piracy, despite their non-intentions to actually buy a real one some day. When I say mp3 file, I am refering to any type of downloadable music file, including liquid audio, real audio etc.
The real explosion in illegal music downloads, however, began in A college student developed an efficient way for finding and downloading MP3 music files over the Internet. This was the Napster "peer-to-peer" file sharing method. Napster maintained computer servers that stored a database of music files. Users could download desired songs free of charge from the database, organize the songs, and burn their own CD music albums.
Napster quickly grew popular, especially among young people. The phrase "rip, mix, burn" entered the vocabulary of these young Napster users. By , Napster had 70 million users worldwide, downloading nearly billion songs a year. The music industry sued Napster in federal court. The court found that the downloading constituted copyright infringement, and Napster shut down its servers and went out of business in Napster was reborn in as a legitimate download-for-pay service.
Alternative peer-to-peer file sharing sites like KaZaA quickly took Napster's place. These sites differed from Napster. They eliminated centralized servers in favor of connecting users' computers directly with one another.
Thus, every user's computer automatically became a source for uploading music files to others. The illegal file sharing of movies developed later than music file sharing. Movies require the transfer of huge computer files, which initially limited illegal downloading. Turning Point. The Apartment Song.

Meaning to "You Are A Pirate" song lyrics. In the end it comes down to this: Adobe don't care if individuals use their software for free because it just locks them into using their software forcing companies to buy Adobe software where most of their income comes from. Blue sky above and blue ocean below You are a pirate! It is done purely for entertainment, not to learn from, and in my eyes it is theft. Adobe and other companies will often provide cheap education licenses and often students don't pay anything for them so it's not uncommon for people to have Photoshop for free without breaking the law. If you use paid software, and you like it, and you never plan on paying for it, though, you're trash. When you pay for something, you don't pay for the right to decide if it's good or bad.
