Abstract

New technology provides the music industry with ways to run its business more efficiently by distributing music over the Internet. But this technology is also posing a threat to the music industry, as music is infinitely copied amongst users. Copy protection systems will not provide a lasting solution because the protection scheme will eventually be by-passed. Copyright legislation can only try to keep up by differentiating between commercial and personal, non-commercial use of music.
