Comment Re:Industrial Revolution (Score 0, Redundant) 409

Without DRM, the copies cease to have value, but the skilled labor that goes into their creation still does, and could be sold even in the absence of DRM (or copyright).

This makes sense in the context of SL, but not in something such as music. Basically, musical artists would become minstrels. They would have no incentive to reproduce music for the masses. Instead, you'd most likely have crappy quality recordings of live concerts made by some guys who snuck in a recording device...
