Sit comfortable with your heart of stone, buddy. It's the RIAA that is extremist. If the music industry woke up and adjusted pricing to fit the "new" marketplace, they would not have to sue their customers. When a book comes out in hard cover, and then at a reduced price in soft cover; that makes sense. The record industry has been trying to sell music for ever increasing prices for years and years. Now, that folks are file-sharing music to get around this predatory pricing, everyone's a criminal. Wow, talk about out of touch. Slashdot and it's contributors should continue to publicize these horror stories brought about by the greed of the music industry.
