Why IS the government so interested in shutting this down? What’s in it for them? Are they really sitting in the pocket of the music industry? Because I find that hard to believe. I thought it was all big accounting firms, energy (oil, electric, etc), and guns.
You know? Like Allison said, why spend so much time on this one issue when there are larger concerns at hand? Does the recording industry really constitute a significant percentage of political supporters? Or do the feds hope that cracking down on file-sharing will be a first step toward regulating other online enterprises?
off to hobby hour,
