Re: file sharing versus copyright infringement
I thought the whole issue(ripping and sharing) was driven because of how music was always sold and distributed, as an album generally with 10-15 songs. However, must people generally listen to only a few songs per album and the ripping and sharing became a way to build a library consisting of only the songs that you wanted not the entire album.
All the p2p file sharing has caused the music industry to analyze how they distributed and packaged their products and thus the prolferation of for-fee music services.
