Replication Wars

EFF wins Grokster case, Cory's got the details.

Look, I know this is somewhat heretical, and I think the EFF is incredibly cool, but the replication wars are over. We already won. The big question is: what will the next industry architecture look like?

Now, the media industry will use every bit of cash it has to litigate for a dead business model - until and unless someone proves there's a better way. Now, we all know there is - but no one's unlocked the new dominant design quite yet.

So what's happening here is curious: litigation makes potential investors wary of this space. So the rate of innovation slows down. At the same time, people spend less on movies and music. So the record industry is really creating a kind of prolonged agony for itself. Bizarre, to say the least.

The SuicideGirls ads are my main reason for visiting ole BoingBoing these days.
