And there is the rub on that side of things. But I have maintained for years
in other areas that we should not have laws on the books that we do not
intend to (or can't) enforce fairly and regularly. Otherwise, we breed
contempt for law in general.

Are we to get to the point were we pass a death sentence on those who
illegally copy music? Will that put enough fear into the people to get them
to stop?

So, for a brief point in time, things came together to allow this. That time
wasn't here long and seems to be passing. Rather than ruining society in
general we need to look forward and try to find ways for those who want to
earn a living with their art to be able to do so if they possess the
necessary skills, temperament, etc. to do so. And that art gets produced in
any case.

I am convinced that people will pay for art to be produced and to "hang out"
with artists in one form or another.

all the best,

drew
