100% MP3, 100% Late (though hopefully not too late)

Oh the sweet irony – back in the days of the original Napster the major record labels refused to countenance that MP3 was the new format of choice for the digital generation and refused to license content for distribution via MP3.  Now ten years on we have the”MP3 100% Compatible” logo / campaign from seven of the UK’s digital music stores, with full support of the music industry.


Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a solid enough idea (even though it will mean little without Apple on board) but it’s tragically ironic that it’s taken the music industry so long to come around to this way of thinking.
