The old beats the obsolete

"Victory! Victory! Victory at last!" cries the IFPI (International Federation of Phonographic Industries) as the Australian court deliver the verdict in the industry's case against Kazaa. The court have found that Kazaa is used for, hold on to your hats now boys and girls, share copyrighted files! Believing that they just beat a leading actor on the "filesharing scene" the rights industry is now dreaming of meadows of gold and green. In their attempt to stop sharing they have missed the fact that most people already switched from costly (and ineffective) systems like Kazaa to the likes of BitTorrent. The armies of the right industry are still chasing after the shadows of the old, the reflections of themselves; still incapable to keep up with the pack they hunt down the weak strays who themselves haven't kept up. The old is feeding on the obsolete, and they call it a victory.

Stupidity rules the rights industry, ok?
