File Swapping Debate

Slashdot | Decriminalizing File Swapping

I always avoid this issue because I can very strongly support either side of this argument. The above link is a good source for hearing their case.

I believe that the laws need to be re reviewed and enforcement should come from the artists, in conjunction with these laws. It should not come from the suits have have don't have one grain of artistic integrity but obviously only see their green paper bottom lines.

  1. Just to expand on what I meant by the artists enforcing the copyright rules in this case. Some bands want their music passed around over P2P because it's exposure. This debate is just one very thin wire and everyone's trying to drive a semi over it.
