Napster Or Not, File Swaps Continue
from the of-course dept
In news that will surprise no one, MSNBC has a story pointing out that, despite the music industry’s successful push to shut down Napster, more people than ever before are sharing music online. The music industry’s response to this is that it would have been even worse if Napster had stayed around. Even worse? More people would have been able to listen to more music in an easier manner? This is “worse”? It’s only “worse” to a music industry that can’t seem to figure out that it’s about time they realized the market for their products have changed. In the meantime, the music industry’s criminals… I mean, customers, continue to go out and get what they want.
