Re: [ARSCLIST] NY Times: Researchers Play Tune Recorded before Edison
>From Steve Abrams: "... Edison included disc
records in his original patent specifications..."
Indeed. Berliner's argument was that some extra twist in the throat of his
horn made his device fundamentally different from Edison's. His backers had
enough money to continue fighting with Edison in court and remain in
production until after Edison's patent had expired. The disk ultimately won
out because of the popularity of Enrico Caruso.
