That sounds about right, lobbying sounds much more palatable. :)
In the US you are free to let someone use, copy or listen to a CD you bought, you can record music from the radio, you can resell a CD you no longer want, you can go to a library to borrow a book, you can rent a DVD, you can take a DVD out of the library if they have them.
You just can't make copies and sell them for profit. The RIAA seems to be up in arms even though file sharing is basically the same thing, just on a larger scale. How much of file sharing is for profit?
The world has changed, thanks to the Internet so the digital providers need to roll with the punches. How would all this change for those demanding huge penalties, if those lobbying for those penalties had to pay for the enforcement? You want to ring someone up on charges for downloading a song, ok, well you can foot the bill for the court proceedings, you can pay for the monitoring software or whatever to ensure they don't access the Internet, if there is any jail time you pay the 40-50K per year to keep them locked up. How many of the people "lobbying" for these types of things can't even check their email, can't conceptualize what search advertising is and look no further than the spreadsheet with P&L in front of them?
When you put a Hollywood CEO at the healm of an Internet company you get Yahoo! When you put Internet CEOs at the healm of and Internet company you get Google.
