The surprising thing is the Rise of Facebook and YouTube, isn't Web 2.0 All about "Sharing"? So we have the **AA handling Music & Movies, but look at the stunning numbers of clips on YouTube that list "all property owned by _______, no copyright infringement intended." How can they even post that? It gets into a twisted circle of "A, is the user that dumb?" or B, "Does the **AA like the nice record breaking sales generated by an obscure cat lady on a British television talent show that no American would ever see normally?"
A long time ago I posted an aggressive note on Slashdot, calling someone's bluff about copyright, when he claimed "he wanted to explore piracy on sales". I smelled a rat, and created a special Creative Commons edition, at which point he magically backed away. Oh, there we go, let's let people "infringe virally" when it helps our sales but retain lawsuit possibilities, and then block other stuff when we don't like it."
