Consumer Electronics Association vs. Media Cartel

Carl Shapiro, president of the Consumer Electronics Association, gave a good speech critisizing the content cartel's scorched earth campaign against the Internet and personal computers. The points he makes will be familiar to anyone following this issue, but it's nice to see organized trade lobbies get into the fray (who thought I would ever say that?)

In particular, he compares the recording industries fortunes to that of the telco sector, or PCs, pointing out that CD sales remain remarkably brisk when so many technology industries are struggling.
