For you writers and musicians out there.

One interesting quote:
"This may be the end of a 90-year window when it was possible to make money 
off recorded music," commented novelist William Gibson this week in a 
speech at the TEDCity conference about the New Economy and the arts.

And another:
Naturally, this has capitalists up in arms and there are plenty of court 
cases attacking such practices. But it won't help. It's impossible to stop 
because property now changes hands in seconds while the court system takes 
years. The pirates are 21st century and the lawyers and lawmakers are 18th 
century.
