Is Napster right or wrong? I thought this interview with David Boies, their chief counsel (of DOJ vs. Microsoft and Al Gore fame), was enlightening. Christopher Locke wrote 'The Cluetrain Manifesto', which talks about information wanting to be free. The idea virus is another presentation of this. Generally, I'm on the Napster side. We need to find different means of distribution, paying artists directly. Let's take the money-grubbing RIAA out of the middle. They're the monopolits here.
