What do these logos mean?

If you see these logos in a download store, it means the track shown is in MP3 format or the retailer using this logo sells content in an MP3 format.

MP3 LogoIf you see these logos on a piece of electronic hardware, it means it can be used to play tracks in the MP3 format.

Anyone using the logo is either a member of the Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA) or has been authorized to use this licensed trademark by ERA

What is MP3?

MP3 is a way of encoding music files to make them much smaller so you can fit many more of them in a computer's memory.

MP3 is the most widely-used format for music downloads and has the advantage that it will play on just about every computer and personal audio player on the market. Put it another way, we haven't found one yet that won't play an MP3.

Therefore MP3 formats play on ALL iPods and ALL other digital music players including Apple iPod, Aigo, Archos, ATMC, Audiotech, Coby, Cowon, Creative, iRiver, Logitech, Philips, Samsung, Sandisc, Sony, Sumvision, Technet and Zune

MP3 formats operate on all hardware including all PC and Mac systems

MP3 formats are compatible with all software systems including iTunes, Windows Media Player, Realplayer, JetAudio, Foobar, Winamp, MOD Plug Player, Music Jukebox, Audion, Cocomodx, VLC and XMMS

MP3 formats have no DRM (Digital Rights Management) restrictions which means there is no limit to the number of devices or computers you can transfer the track onto.
