An interesting article on the music industry, written by a guy who is helping me with PHP/MySQL code for my soon-to-be-released blog... http://www.luxagraf.com/archive/2003/11/music2 "In theft there is the loss of both potential revenue and an object. While copyright infringement may be a source of revenue loss, the owner of the copyright has not been deprived of the copyright. And as the good justice points out the potential violator has not "deprived [the copyright] owner of it's use." What then is the use of copyright? Is the use of copyright simply to ensure that someone pays some hard earned clams for a physical object? Is copyright a means of collecting revenue?"
