It’s like déjà vu all over again.

Steve ‘Monkey Boy’ Ballmer - CEO Microsoft - 4th October 2004:

The most common format of music on an iPod is ‘stolen’.

Rob Glaser - Real Networks - 11th May 2006:

If you want interoperable music today, there is a very easy solution: it’s called stealing. The average number of songs sold for the iPod is 25, and there are many more songs on iPods than 25. About half the music on iPods is music obtained illegitimately either from an illegal peer-to-peer networks or from ripping friends' CDs, which is illegal. But it’s the only way to get non-copy protected, portable, interoperable music.
