The received wisdom seemed to suggest that the "big names" (Sony , EMI etc.)
never had a hope of successfully sueing Napster and were engaging in what
amounted to sabre rattling , leaving it to Bertelsman to force the issue by
breaking ranks. It seems like we could be on the verge of a new age of
listening to high quality recorded music. Perhaps the new generation of home
sound systems will include internet access facilities and the opportunity to
download and store recordings (if these things do not already exist).
Good-bye compact disc?????
