That's really funny. I wrote something very much along those lines last night on my site - that the DCMA is trying to treat copyrights like drugs, and trafficking and harbouring known traffickers etc. as capital crimes.

My favorite Napster commentary of the week is Library System Terrorizes Publishing Industry.

Ruben Bolling and Tom Tomorrow are Salon's best features.

Drug dealers push coke and heroin...

Music companies push Britney and NSync and Mariah...

Hey wait!! It's not nice to put down drug dealers like that!!

I was actually thinking Mariah should be fixed.
