The music industry is showing some signs of a rebound in the first half of 2004, with full-length CD shipments to retail outlets increasing by 10.2 percent, compared to the amount of shipments over the same time period in 2003. This is the first time in five years that the first half of the year has experienced an increase in shipments.

The designer of the DualDisc, Dieter Dierks, who is also reportedly involved in a legal battle over patent issues with WEA, announced a new disc format called One Disc. The One Disc format showcases Dieter Dierks’ DVDPlus technology, as it combines a full capacity CD on one side and a full capacity DVD on the other side. The creator claims the format has no compatibility issues with existing hardware and can be played or viewed in the standard CD or DVD player including, but not limited to, computers and home theater systems.

DualDisc seems to really have the attention of the four major record labels as the next physical format they want to use to sell their music, having beaten out SACD and potentially incorporating many of the features of DVD-Audio onto the DVD side of the half-CD/half-DVD “dual disc.” According to a release from a number of big record companies a few weeks ago, as many as 50 DualDiscs will be released this October, just in time for the holiday selling season.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting some legal snags for the CD/DVD Dual Disc format even before it is released. In an article that was recently posted on the Times’ website said that Philips, who owns much of the intellectual property behind the Compact Disc and licenses the CD logo, wouldn’t let Dual Disc use the CD logo because it didn’t fit into the CD spec. Another angry party is the German firm that created the first Dual Disc. According to the Times, DVD Plus is claiming WEA has breeched their contract which has allowed the record conglomerate to continue to develop the two sided audio-video disc.
