File-sharing and other copyright stuff

With over 230 million downloads, Kazaa is now the most popular free software on the Net, a distinction previously held by ICQ instant messaging. (Interesting implications for the "social software movement", no?)

All of which compelled me to spend hours reading Lawrence Lessig's and Aaron Swartz's weblogs and EPIC's DRM page this weekend. Tons of good stuff.

Update 27/05/03: Brian Alexander reports from the Berkeley DRM Conference, The State of Digital Rights Management
