KGBear (71109) writes "We're seeing paper after paper either converting to websites or just dying. Witness Rocky Mountain News and Seattle Post-Intelligencer. We all know why they are dying: we no longer need what they have to sell. What good is something that brings me yesterday's news once daily when I can get this minute's news every minute — and for free? This is how it should be. It should be like this also with music publishers and distributors. My question is this: why aren't newspapers lobbying congress to outlaw free news dissemination online? Or conversely, why is the music industry able to get away with it?"
