P2P LIVES: JUDGE RULES FILE SHARING PROGRAMS
DON'T INFRINGE COPYRIGHTS
Fear not gentle reader. RIAA will
never give up. With software out of bounds (assuming they
lose on appeal), your friendly music industry will sharpen

lawsuit sectors (ISPs and you). They don't have to worry about
prying that vile file sharing software from your cold dead
fingers if you're behind bars.

Proposed bills extend DMCA to outlaw

WELCOME TO REALITY, SENATOR
Senate panel hearing reaches self-evident
conclusion: "More people are downloading more copyrighted
material. Clearly, even as it's growing increasingly apparent
that the entertainment industry must embrace digital distribution
to survive, the industry continues to fight a losing battle,
promoting legal challenges and churning out anti-file-sharing
public service announcements."
