The future should involve free access to media, with it so readily available thanks to the internet, I think this is the direction we are heading, but those that are raking in the money because of movies and CD's are fighting it tooth and nail. Its the way of change, how is this any different than machines taking over jobs of people on assembly lines. Those people fought it too. I see it in kind of a Star Trek light, "computer...play me this song by this artist". The computer never asked Riker for his $1.95 per song. But no, our society is so driven by money, that will never happen. We need in a couple years to get these younger generation politicians in office that can help move things in these directions. Make it legal and dont call it piracy. Things are changing, and we can only fight it for so long.
