One author's take on MP3's

Here's an extremely well written article on copyright in general and on the book, movie, and music industries in particular. The article was written by Orson Scott Card, award-winning author of Ender's Game and books for Rhino Times of Greensboro, NC.

It is an excellent description of the issues surrounding copyright, it's changes and exploitation since the 1978 revision of the law, covering print, video and music media.
