Sample text

In October 1999, Carnegie Mellon University used specialized software to detect potentially copyright-infringing materials on the dorm room network of a random selection of 250 students. They subsequently disconnected Internet service from the 71 individuals who were found to be hosting illegal music archives, and stated that Internet access could be regained following attendance at a discussion forum on the topic of copyrights (Mendels, 1999; Philipkoski, 1999a). Penn State, in the spring of 2003, revoked broadband Internet access from 220 students in residential halls after it was discovered that they were committing intellectual property theft (Davis, 2003).

To determine the extent to which unauthorized digital music distribution over the Internet has proliferated and how it might affect the music industry’s revenue stream, a handful of empirical studies have been conducted. These, however, have been primarily sponsored by music business stakeholders in an attempt to validate or refute claims that the availability of digital audio files adversely affects CD sales, the recording industry, and the artists themselves. Most of these examinations occurred in 1999 and 2000, the years in which Napster served as the catalyst that propelled MP3 technology into the limelight.

However, some individuals and companies desire to reap the financial benefits of creating commercially valuable product in order to make up for their investment of time, money, and effort. Similar to Jesus’ parable in Matthew 13 of the thorns which choke out the crops that attempt to flourish, a weed of disregard for intellectual property - left to germinate and grow on a society-wide level - could ultimately “choke out” the originative and inventive dogmas of our culture. As more and more aspects of our lives are affected (and more of our needs are met) through the capacities afforded by the Internet, this will drastically affect the structure and function of our networked economy and society.
