The rise of MP3s, Napster, and the internet as an information sharing device is the result of a dam of information filled past the point of bursting.
That dam was held in place by legislation which favored monopolistic interests, the market be damned.
I don't steal music or movies, because frankly I think most of what those industries spit out is crap.
But I firmly believe the music, film, video, television and news businesses in this country have no one but themselves to blame for what's happening to them.
And I, for one, am enjoying the hell out of it.
One more thing: it's the thinking that put those industries in the situation that they're in that's going to be the undoing of Bill Gates and his monstrous abominations of software.
Does that mean you would steal music and movies you like?
