Interesting data on the rise/fall of music delivery - eye-wateringly ugly animated GIF - Tufte would have a field day with this. Small multiples or better, to show trends, sparklines or animated bar charts (reminding of EQ sliders) to make it much more obvious and easy to read.
Agree that looking at the data, in the midst of the rise of the CD, it would've been easy to think, as a music executive, that it would last forever.
But even James Bond knows CDs aren't forever. ;)
