Audio coding originally has been developed as a means for making digital radio possible and for distributing audio via phone lines. The most apparent application today is electronic distribution of music via the Internet. While legal services and copy protection methods have been around for seven years, the public attention and the bulk of actual use is still on unauthorized copying of music files. The talk will introduce the basic techniques for high quality coding of music and discuss some possibilities to reduce the unauthorized copying of music.
