That's an old saying about the difficulty of even well-positioned businesses to dictate terms to customers.
And now on with the news:
Sony will now support mp3.

P2p and file sharing are here to stay, locked in solid, and mp3s are the preferred modes of listening. That's it, plain and simple, highly expensive attempts by Sony and others to force people into adopting proprietary technologies notwithstanding.
Whole thing here.
