What I find interesting is this says nothing about small and up and cumming record labals. I have a friend with a record labal she has had to close and then reopen over and over agian because she has a hard tim building up her talents. This is largely due to the issues brought up here. Large labals are able to handle this, but smaller labals are shafted because when a new artest comes out and a song is out for streaming, its then shared instead of people buying their own copies.

  


Mo st small labels have fans willing to buy their stuff just to support them

Why doesn't the music and movie corporations sell their merchandise online and code their movies for a certain format that cant be uploaded. and put a stop to this stuff. Sell them cheap and affordable in multiple languages and they will make more money thay already do.

  

That is what we DONT want them to do, that's called "DRM" or Digital Restrictions Management, which works in the form of limiting what you can do with the content you by, by taking control of your computer. Not to mention this doesn't work because they do this all ready. Eg. DVD Encryption

Interesting to see how the music & film industry will dismiss this paper and thorough investigation as "pure nonsense". Alas common sense doesn't have a lobby group.
