A good read with some good interaction (rosen is really taking onthe title
of mediawhorebiotch)


"At the request of The New York Times, seven people on the battlefield's
front lines agreed to meet for a roundtable discussion of the issues. The
participants were Hilary Rosen, president of the Recording Industry
Association of America, a trade group representing the major record
labels; David Boies, a New York attorney defending Napster against an RIAA
lawsuit; Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee,
which recently held hearings on downloadable music; the filmmaker Kevin
Smith ("Chasing Amy," "Dogma"); Gene Kan, a Gnutella software developer;
Esther Dyson, the author and venture capitalist; and Craig Newell, a
17-year-old consumer from Lynnfield, Mass. Befitting the topic, the
discussion was conducted entirely in cyberspace, through exchanges of
e-mail messages."
