Napster first knocked the music industry on its rear a few years ago by allowing millions of people to freely “swap” digital music files, a practice the courts frowned on, essentially driving Napster offline. While illegal downloading still occurs, millions of people are paying to acquire music legally from Apple‘s iTunes.
Who do you think will win the online music wars? We’re betting on iTunes. Apple is making buying legal digital music easier than stealing it. Convenience + variety + $0.99 a song wins in our opinion.
