    >>i think the future of music consumption involves artists directly selling to the public and
    bypassing major labels - this certainly won't eliminate piracy, but it will put more money
    directly into the pockets of artists, who continue to be ripped off by the music industry now
    more than ever - the whining of the major labels is sickening, especially when you see lawsuit
    after lawsuit by artists who have been ripped off by the millions - i have no sympathy for the
    conglomerates and would gladly fork over my dollars directly to the artists whose music i want
    to own -<<

    I agree with you 100 percent and obviously I am a BIG supporter of independent artists.
    However this type of technology, mass produced will make it much tougher (impossible??) for
    any new artists to be heard at all

    >>that being said, this scenario rings true, as i see it happening among middle school and
    high school kids - by the time they get to college, even the least sophisticated young person
    knows how to bypass copyright protection like walter payton moving through even the most
    potent defense<<

    I agree with you Harry, these younger consumers of music will jump on this technology like...
    "white on rice"
