A little clarity

on this issue, again, of file-sharing. A timely intervention by The Man Who Single-Handedly Resorted My Faith in Science, Ben Goldacre at Bad Science clarifies some of the lies being put about by the increasingly desperate recording industry, who seem to be an object lesson in how to do yourself no favours. (As Dr. Goldacre says, 'as far as I’m concerned, everything from this industry is false, until proven otherwise.')

Bad Science pops, in its usual indomitable way, some of the recent myths about money lost in the UK due to file-sharing, and its consequences for the creative industries. And a supportive piece appeared in yesterday's Technology section of The Guardian.

Is it any wonder that the Pirate Party did so well in European election last week?
