starting in 1987 and completed in 1989. The format was patented in Germany and became
part of the MPEG standard in 1992, and was granted an American patent in 1996. The official
name is \'MPEG layer 3\' which has become abbreviated to MP3. From there the format was
made popular through the file-sharing network of Napster and others, and the illegal music
