From CNN (http://edition.cnn.com/2003/TECH/internet/08/28/downloading.music.ap/) -

"[T]he industry disclosed its use of a library of digital fingerprints, called "hashes," that it said can uniquely identify MP3 music files that had been traded on the Napster service as far back as May 2000."

Obviously I'm new here, and this question might be dumb, I don't know, but: Can anyone explain what this means?
