Editorial I hear often that when something new appears that "competition is good". The primary reasons competition is seen as good, are: it drives down prices; it gives consumers more choice; it pushes technology forward, quicker. Competition is not good because: competition is why consumers have to choose between HD-DVD and BluRay; competition is why DRM exists; and more. In this article, each of the supposed benefits of competition will be looked at in more detail.

"Out of which >90% give copies away or receive copies of music/movies without purchasing them. Most learned to do this from friends OR from their parents. And almost none of them feel that they have violated the law in any way."

If most people break a law without remorse or consequences, maybe the law should be changed, not the people.
