Wired News: Lawmaker Revs Up Fair-Use Crusade

Wired News: Lawmaker Revs Up Fair-Use Crusade

Isn't it odd (I mean, isn't it ABSURD) that with the backing of the NRA it's nearly impossible to enact any kind of gun legislation that would actually help Americans be safer (like that 50 caliber rifle that's powerful enough to take down an aircraft, or pierce armor-plated vehicles like armored cars and armored Wells Fargo trucks).

Now imagine that the companies that develop/sell p2p software had that same amount of lobbying power behind [them].

So what's wrong with this picture?

Instead of realizing that the nature of their business is changing, and that instead of lashing out at their perceived enemy, they would be better served by adapting and embracing new technologies and spending their considerable resources in a positive way, rather than making enemies out of potential customers!

The entertainment industry should have learned from prior experience (cassette/video tapes & associated hardware) to not waste time and resources fighting new technologies. With the current state of affairs NOBODY wins....
