內容簡介

2015年金融時報年度商業選書決選、紐約時報編輯選書。

不只是音樂故事,而是從貪婪、狡猾、天才、到欺騙,揭開音樂與網路的秘辛。

你大概不曾想過,你也是盜版音樂的共犯。記者Stephen Witt深入追蹤音樂盜版的隱秘歷史,從德國工程師發明了MP3,到北卡羅萊納州的小型光碟製造工廠,其中工廠工人Dell Glover流出近兩千張專輯,曼哈頓音樂製作Doug Morris壟斷全球RAP市場……錯綜複雜的場景,驚心動魄的描繪,從盜版唱片到免費音樂,這是一條陰鬱黑暗的道路,發明家、工廠工人、走私,原來他們才是徹底顛覆唱片市場,音樂藝術的幕後黑手,首次揭開音樂媒體背後的海盜行為,徹底改變現代人聆聽音樂的方式。

How Music Got Free is a riveting story of obsession, music, crime, and money, featuring visionaries and criminals, moguls and tech-savvy teenagers. It’s about the greatest pirate in history, the most powerful executive in the music business, a revolutionary invention and an illegal website four times the size of the iTunes Music Store. 

Journalist Stephen Witt traces the secret history of digital music piracy, from the German audio engineers who invented the mp3, to a North Carolina compact-disc manufacturing plant where factory worker Dell Glover leaked nearly two thousand albums over the course of a decade, to the high-rises of midtown Manhattan where music executive Doug Morris cornered the global market on rap, and, finally, into the darkest recesses of the Internet.

Through these interwoven narratives, Witt has written a thrilling book that depicts the moment in history when ordinary life became forever entwined with the world online—when, suddenly, all the music ever recorded was available for free. In the page-turning tradition of writers like Michael Lewis and Lawrence Wright, Witt’s deeply reported first book introduces the unforgettable characters—inventors, executives, factory workers, and smugglers—who revolutionized an entire artform, and reveals for the first time the secret underworld of media pirates that transformed our digital lives.

An irresistible never-before-told story of greed, cunning, genius, and deceit, How Music Got Free isn’t just a story of the music industry—it’s a must-read history of the Internet itself.
