Slashdot notes that Hilary Rosen, now that she's no longer in charge of the RIAA, has suddenly found the time to find out what Larry Lessig's Creative Commons is all about and decided that, it's really not such a bad thing after all. This is what's scary. Many people supporting Creative Commons and other views on business models for the recording industry have been trying to clearly explain how these things can help the industry, and repeatedly the industry refuses to listen -- assuming that the only people who are suggesting changes are simply trying to destroy the industry. So now, quite some time after she's out of the office where she should have actually listened to what was being said, she suddenly realizes that it's not so bad, after all (though, some of her statements aren't exactly a ringing endorsement of the idea).
