Here’s the deal: Napster was killed off by it’s own success. It was just too easy to d/l music illegally. With Napster out of the way the controversy has lost it’s momentum, the RIAA have made their point, and now we can go back to our original methods. The only difference is that Joe Burner isn’t going to find it quite so easy as before. And this is the nub of the matter: EASE. These days it’s just too easy to duplicate an audio CD for illegal purposes. Not so with a DVD, and how many people do you see complaining that they can’t backup X-Men? I have, on many occasions, downloaded an entire album of the net to replace an original that I accidentally destroyed. If they go through with AudioCD copy protection then that justifies me spending more time downloading off the internet. If they expect ME to pay for the development of this protection system by raising CD prices, then this justifies me to take whatever steps are necessary to get more value for my money; so I buy a single or two and augment the rest of the album via the internet. At the end of the day we will just continue as we have been, the only difference is that there will be less of us doing it.
