Bianchi, Frederick W.
Since the mid-90s, the audio CODEC has enhanced the distribution and ease of access to music. Along with this, the transfer of illegal audio CODECs and MP3s has exploded into colleges, businesses, and homes. However, this is a convenience that has steadily taken away from music industry profits and power. This project explores the effects of the audio CODEC in today's society and looks forward to predict its future impact on artists, the record industry and technology.
