Those of you who worry that the music and/or film industry will destroy themselves from the inside with their archaic view of the world.

When you have a medium which allows you to get your product or service into the homes of millions at virtually zero cost you should utilize that, and reinvent your industry's view of how to do business. Instead of bitching about 'intellectual infringement' you should be glad for the free advertising. Seriously, people pay millions of dollars for the kind of new fan-base that a single top-spot on demonoid will get an artist. Rather than basing the music industry with music as the be-all end-all product, treat it like a service. I pay X amount of dollars a month to be able to download the (DRM free) music that I want. Or, the music is free(or very cheap) but artists spend more time on tour, and sell more t-shirts and other products. There are 2 ideas that I assure you can be worked into a viable plan with a few days worth of work.

I'd also like to point out that I do not really pirate music. I do, however, back up all of the CDs that I buy. Copyright law needs to be completely rehashed for use in the digital age. When major corporations can whisper the word 'lawsuit' and terrify poor grandmother's into settling out of court, there's something wrong with the legal system.

You are, of course, correct and I think we are starting to lean in that direction with things like Rhapsody, Xune (I neither bothered to look up how to spell that or if it was relevant to my list), and Pandora, but recording "artists" will always be the biggest babies about it when we force them to do it your way.
