What you own is no longer yours The record industry is trying to get ISPs to block users using Napster. The problem with this is that it requires ISPs to track what people have on their hard discs, an area that used to belong to the individual. If the record industry would have its way, consumers would no longer own anything they bought, be it a record, CD, or computer. This takes copyright protection in the online world way beyond it in the offline world. The madness must be stopped.
