How Music Got Free

Named one of Time magazine’s best books of 2015 so far, How Music Got Free is a story about greed, friendship, genius, stupidity and music piracy. In the gripping book, author Stephen Witt tells the fascinating story of pirated music, from the German audio engineers who invented the mp3, to the story of Dell Glover, a worker in a compact-disc manufacturing plant, with access to new albums who leaked nearly 2,000 of them over the course of a decade, to the story of an illegal website four times the size of the iTunes Music Store, and how the music industry allowed Apple and others to control the steering wheel of the digital transition.
