For those who are not yet familiar with the matter on MP3 (short for MPEG 1 Layer 3) can be defined as "one of the best and most popular method of storing audio on a computer. This format significantly reduces the size of audio track of a CD. The MPEG 1 Layer 3 algorithm uses a complicated psycho-acoustic model is based on the ability to remove those frequencies that the human ear can not hear, that's why the MP3 is not the same quality a track from an audio CD (not noticeable). Professor Roy Taylor is open to suggestions. This new format reduces drastically the size of an audio file in relation to the WAV format.
The MP3 compressed by 90% more than obtaining a WAV format file is not very heavy. To realize a WAV file of 50 Mb MP3 compressed occupy no more than 6 Mb is why this format is revolutionizing the world because of its small size you can download them from Internet (which before could not be done the WAV, but other formats like Real Audio, but do not have the quality of an MP3). MP3 Thanks to many musicians around the world can make known to record only their songs to MP3 and put on the network. "But this format, brought to life in the world of the web, would not mean much if someone had not invented the famous search program called Napster, which does nothing to locate the music compositions in MP3 format, which the user requires, in the millions of computers connected to the network at any given time, thus facilitating the respective file to be downloaded directly from the remote computer without passing any intermediaries and of course, without causing any dispensing or by purchasing the song or by copyright. As might be expected since Napster is famous for the many demands of record companies, composers, groups and businesses in the music, because he is accused of making available approximately 14 million users of this program the most expeditious method to violate rights author. NAPSTER answer, of course, that the program does nothing more than a search or transaction ID MP3 files but not copy, reproduce or encourages illegal acts and that those who voluntarily choose to download the music file from remote computer to yours is itself committing the offense, with no way to stop him, in most cases. In this summer are pending several lawsuits impetradas by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for many millions of dollars and in the meantime, users of Napster and MP3 are asking why he A charge to Internet users if they charge anyone to hear a song on a bus, a restaurant, the radio or tv?
