Microsoft has been granted a patent for "stealthy audio watermarking," which is just a slick way of saying inaudible digital watermarks directly embedded in the audio of a file, allowing the owner to be traced.

You'd think they'd worry about actually selling music before trying to tie it down, though. [PC World, Flickr]
