Music Industry Insanity The RIAA is now going after some of the post-Napster peer-to-peer services, arguing that "supernode" computers are similar to the centralized Napster database. I also have it on good authority that RIAA wants to count each compression format of a song as a different song for royalty purposes (which would outlaw online radio). Now, going after the new peer-to-peer services I understand, but banning streaming internet radio? They're nuts. Anyway, here's the Slashdot thread.
