Downloading Is Not Immoral Or Illegal
from the finally dept
The head of the Consumer Electronics Association is finally fighting back against the entertainment industry. In reality, he's not "fighting back", he's simply letting them know that they're shooting themselves in the foot by not providing customers what they want. He pointed out that, "the entire theme of the copyright community is that downloading off the Web is both illegal and immoral. It is neither." More to the point, he explains that the entertainment industry is employing a "scorched earth" strategy, where they're destroying everything in their path - including their own businesses.
