Fearing File Sharing (2) (Webmaster Column)

Dubroom Online - Edition November 27, 2007


WWW, November 27 2007 - Ever since Heavy Metal band Metallica started to complain about people sharing music over the Internet, the disdain and hatred from the entertainment industry towards their customers became painfully clear.

We have definitely entered an Age of Paranoia and the victims of this craziness are the consumers.

Idiotic laws, stories about police raiding houses where little children share music over P2P networks, independent film makers so intimidated by the propaganda machine that they even fear to send out review copies of their works.

However, in the long run it could very well be that you, the consumer, will be the winner in this race.

More tomorrow.

Give Thanks, One Love,
