Recording industry greedhead Hillary Rosen showed up to make peace with the P2P community at O’Reilly’s P2P conference this week. The fact of the matter is that the recording industry’s problems aren’t with the P2P community, they’re with their customers. The ongoing attempts by the RIAA to stamp out any P2P service that comes along don’t seem to be dissuading people from pirating music like mad. And furthermore, it doesn’t seem like the pirates are in danger of putting the recording industry out of business. The RIAA’s problem is that people don’t see the value in spending their money on recordings when they can pirate them. Obsessing over FastTrack or Napster or Gnutella is just a distraction, and every time a new DRM scheme is cracked it becomes more obvious that DRM isn’t the solution, either.
