Digital Also Means Perfect
Digital methods have caused a worldwide revolution in every facet of life. The 0s and 1s of digital data mean more than just on and off. They mean perfect copying. When information, music, voice and video are turned into binary digital form, they can be electronically manipulated, preserved and regenerated perfectly at high speed. The millionth copy of a computer file is identical to the original. While this has driven software and content publishers to distraction protecting their copyrights, it is nevertheless a significant advantage of digital processing.

Every day, trillions of data elements are uploaded to and downloaded from the Internet. Although errors can occur in transmission, when company records and financial data are sent, errors can be detected, and corrective measures are taken automatically by the communications system. See binary and error checking.
