+ - Copyright wars: everyone is wrong->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "British website Spiked says both the media industry and its critics are wrong when it comes to the copyright wars.

"Everyone and their dog knows that the media is being torn asunder by the forces unleashed by the internet. Almost every movie ever made is available on BitTorrent, half of television's history is easily accessible worldwide courtesy of copyright-flouting Chinese video websites and, despite the success of legitimate services such as iTunes and Spotify, illegal downloads continue to dwarf online music sales."

The article argues that it's not illegal downloads that are destroying the media but instead it's the fault of industry as a whole retreating from production.

Interesting comparison to free and open source software. Slashdot gets a mention also."
