    LOS ANGELES Nearly a year after the Supreme Court issued a landmark ruling against online music file-sharing services, the CEO of the Recording Industry Association of America says unauthorized song swapping has been "contained."

    "The problem has not been eliminated," says association CEO Mitch Bainwol. "But we believe digital downloads have emerged into a growing, thriving business, and file-trading is flat."

    That's an optimistic view from an industry that saw its numbers slide to near oblivion after the launch of the original Napster in 1999. CD sales fell as much as 30%, and the RIAA pressed Congress and the courts for relief against what it said was rampant piracy.

    The problem's never gonna be "contained" in my opinion, so they can keep dreaming.

    The "problem" being "contained" and simply leveled off and no longer on the rise because everyone is now doing it, is a big difference.

    edit: ^^ Wow...that was poorly worded.
