Prof. Fisher in CNET

Terry Fisher has an op-ed in CNET regarding his increasingly-famous proposal for compulsory licensing of digital media.  He writes: “The [RIAA’s] proposed litigation campaign will be extraordinarily costly. It is likely to be ineffective–as file swappers use proxy servers, offshore Internet sites, and encrypted peer-to-peer systems to avoid detection. And it will further alienate the already disaffected community of music consumers. More importantly, better solutions to the crisis in the music industry are available. The more dramatic–but also the best–would be the establishment of a compulsory licensing system.”
