Today we live in a highly digitized world and so it is only natural that even music turned digital. Music is something that most humans are able to easily identify with and are attracted to. So when everything went online, music too followed suit and moved from analog to digital.
Soon we had personal digital music players like the iPod etc. which became a rage. Where earlier musical success was counted with the number of copies of the albums sold, it began to be measured in terms of number of hits or number of downloads.
There were associated problems of piracy and plagiarism, but what always sells and thrives is what the public wants and so digital music continues to rule the music industry. And the need has given rise to a lot of digital music distribution companies.
