That is horrible. Even if I was supportive of current copyright law the
results of this could be damaging to the point where it may be difficult to
even transfer files for which you own the rights. Maybe I'm being
paranoid, but if Rosen had her way we could end up in a world where only
authorized (by the RIAA of course) companies could actually transmit audio
over the net. I'm sure the major labels would love that since it would
again give them control over distribution, etc. The ultimate idea is not
only to control their own product, but to prevent competition.
