MP3 players have proliferated and their use has increased.
Many users are playing back digital music, spoken word and video content via consumer electronics devices such as portable MP3 players. This market for portable MP3 players is rapidly expanding according to the JupiterResearch US Portable Music Device Forecast dated April 2005. For example, in the United States, this market is expected to grow from a 15.2 million installed base in 2004 to a projected base of 35.3 million players in 2005. Since fall 2004, a number of device manufacturers have incorporated, or announced that they plan to incorporate, Microsofts Windows Media Digital Rights Management 10 technology (WMDRM10) into portable MP3 players. WMDRM10 technology allows users to extend their online music subscriptions to their portable MP3 players, providing them greater flexibility in the use of their music collections.
The use of these devices has created demand for services that can provide permanent or limited access to content to fill these devices.
