“Music CDs compatible with current (2002) CD players will still be sold regularly in 2015.”

Jacob A Walker


Walker's Argument

Despite the dominance of wireless network access, the compact disc offers an efficient format for selling music. While record labels will be unsuccessful in getting digital rights management technology in hardware that would render current CD players useless, they will continue to sell CDs - tangible products at retail stores for many years to come. A major format change may occur, but the dominance of compact disc players will require the discs to be sold well into 2015.
