Multimedia, AV ABC.net.au has published an article titled "The Case for Piracy". The writer shows how copyright has been hijacked by corporations and that publishers are their own worst enemies. "One of the main reasons we all have anti-piracy slogans embedded in our brains is because the music industry chose to try and protect its existing market and revenue streams at all costs and marginalise and vilify those who didn't want to conform to the harsh new rules being set."

Slashdot ran this piece weeks ago.

I doubt it - unless that date is wrong.

I'd expect a slightly better conversation here than on Slashdot anyway... Whenever I post on Slashdot, I brace for the email notifications: People who agree mod you up, everyone else comments. It happens here too, but there's (usually) a bit less bile in the discussions.
