My feelings on music/movie piracy have always been mixed. I agree that mass file sharing violates copyright laws. And yet, I've downloaded my share. Usually I buy the music if I like it or delete it if I don't. For me it's a good trial run. I've bought too many CDs over the years that ended up crap, even with the short preview in iTunes.

But mostly I feel that the entertainment industry has stepped over the line. But after reading these articles I hope there's some room for DRM reform and compromise.

    I've also bought gazillions (maybe just gajillions, actually) of albums and I've tried to take a stand against piracy, but these record companies go out of their way to shaft customers. The crap artists I can avoid, but the artificially fixed prices, the weird computer-busting copy protection so you can't make a mix, etc. I'm really getting sick of it.
