A great book on the recent history of music piracy and the advent of the MP3 is How Music Got Free:

I highly recommend "How Music Got Free" for an entertaining and illuminating read of MP3 and how it changed the world - for the better or worse.

It also delves into how Fraunhofer (and its creator) benefited monetarily from its adoption.

Anybody looking to know more about the origins/organization behind What.cd would do well to check out Stephen Witt's monumental book on the subject: How Music Got Free (https://www.amazon.com/How-Music-Got-Free-Obsession/dp/01431...)
