Heard today that the big cats in the music industry have decided to prosecute individual users downloading from p2p sites and are warning everyone against doing it. Opinion seems to be that this is little more than a scare tactic. I have sympathy for the few hundred or so poor bastards who are likely to face huge fines though - they are nothing but scapegoats. Whilst I have no sympathy for anyone selling or running a business out of downloading music I think the record companies are playing fowl. A 7% reduction in profits is hardly going to dent their wallets even if internet downloading was proved to be responsible. We all know consumers have been ripped off for years to line the pockets of the big companies and record companies have only got themselves to blame for not keeping up with technology anyway until it was too late. Most people still buy CD's and trying to prosecute individuals from downloading is hardly going to do anything positive. Why don't they just accept that the price of a CD will never be the same again and for most people that's welcome news. What do you think?
