The Null Device

Salon's Scott Rosenberg reckons that the RIAA have dug their own grave by crushing Napster. They could have a point (i.e., distributed file sharing will be harder to kill, and US Congress doesn't seem too friendly to the copyright industry's calls for draconian legislation), though I'm sure a few billion dollars could buy the RIAA some highly favourable laws tacked on as riders to other legislation. In any case, every major-label published (or, to a lesser extent, distributed) CD you buy helps the RIAA hire lawyers and lobbyists, so you may do well to stop.
