Senate explores internet piracy
A state Senate committee exploring piracy has been warned this week by analysts that the file trading phenomenon has become larger than the record industry itself, and that it is now "fundamentally unstoppable", and only getting bigger. "We see only one trend," reported analyst Eric Garland. "More people are downloading more copyrighted material." While Garland recommended the industry embrace digital distribution and avoid PR relations nightmare style lawsuits, the industry itself argued that education was the answer, including a new anti-file-sharing movie clip that will appear soon in movie theaters. Meanwhile new stats indicate that 42% of p2p searches are for porn, and 38% are for audio files.

Extract From: DSL Reports Page. Got a kick out of the anti-file-sharing movie clip the MPAA intends to throw at us. That'll be funny. Too bad we all dl movies instead of go to them.
