What we are dealing with is an industry that is desperately grasping at a perceived loss of its right to reap the rewards of its work. That's fair. That's understandable. The movie makers, musicians, and software publishers have every right to earn money for their work. However, they have no right to make the first amendment subject to their bottom lines. While some legislative action is probably needed to curtail digital piracy, what is most likely needed is for the industry to adapt to changing technology. Don't forget these are the same people who tried to sue to prevent the introduction of home video to the marketplace over the same concerns of piracy.
