perhaps. but not any less useful a question for it. i deliberately
asked which of those two options people would choose because that's
exactly what i'm interested in knowing.

i would fully expect it to fail in the marketplace if the marketplace
were immune to external influence and featured no monopolies and
cartels. it only takes a few well placed laws written in an RIAA office
and enacted on capitol hill then exported around the globe and the
marketplace is trumped.
but i should watch my language.
*i'm personally convinced*, we're gonna get pervasive DRM.


who would take widespread copyright infringement over DRM as the lesser
of two evils any day. even if it meant not making a living from music.
