    Re: Privacy invaders

    ...not to mention that CD & DVD sales are rising year-on-year. These file-sharers really _are_ killing the industry, huh?

    The fallacy 'a download = a lost sale' was disproved a long time ago.

    What's the Frequency, William?

    Who - other than the 'industries' themselves - cares one iota whether they'll make 'tons of dough'? There is no 'mystery' here - there are several working models out there for revenue-generation that negate a need for these obsolete MPAA/RIAA clowns.

    In respect of musicians, artists make the majority of their money from gigging & merching, while it's the corporate leeches that make their lucre from CD sales. It's also widely accepted that filesharing mp3s raises public awareness & can actually _generate_ income; high-profile examples being Radiohead & NiN.
