Re: Napster

I'm glad to see the RIAA and the record
companies are getting their Party Line
through to someone. Boo-hoo!

Oh come on, Steve, this is the same thing the
greedy cry-babies whined about when blank cassettes
became available and music-lovers were swapping
compilation of favorite songs with each other.

They claimed "Congress must do something or we'll be
ruined!" Take a look around. Seems the record companies
are thriving more than ever.

See, what happens when people openly copy and trade music
is that it actually promotes new music to millions of folks
who might never consideed buying an album or CD by Artist X.

Napster is a boon to the music industry, just as home
taping was.

Think about it a little deeper next time before spouting
off the "Press Release-approved" agit-prop of your
oppressors. ;)
