(1) Converting an audio CD from its native CD-DA format to MP3, AAC, FLAC or some other compressed audio format. The term was coined with a counterculture inference, because many tech-savvy people loved the idea they were "ripping off" the music industry by making copyrighted works available in a compact format that could be quickly downloaded over the Internet. Ripping is also called "importing." See CD-DA, MP3, AAC, FLAC, codec examples and import.
