The Register gives Hilary a proper send-off:

"Rosen's vilest deed was not the crucifixion of Napster, but her
determination to strangle Internet radio at birth. Rather than seeing it
as a useful publicity medium, the RIAA fought long and dirty to burden
stations with punitive royalties and administrative demands."

And the latest issue of WiReD has an article/interview about her:

The article starts with Rosen debating free music at the Oxford Union
debate hall. Not surprisingly, given the audience, she lost (and almost
voted against herself when she nearly walked through the wrong door).
Biased recap of that debate here:

Two days until Illegal Art Chicago!
