Defining a Middle Ground

Here's another post from the Copyfighter's Musings IP law blog regarding the P2P dilemma:
http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/cmusings/2005/02/09#a1033

As with most of my other posts, this deals with the ongoing P2P file-sharing controversy. Defining a middle ground, according to Derek Slater, involves "providing sufficient (monetary) incentives so that creative material will be created and distributed for the public's benefit while b) minimizing damage to innovation, legitimate consumer rights, and other public interests."

I believe a good step in the right direction would be for software companies to issue stricter warnings to users about infringing uses of their product. If the government defined standards for what constituted a good warning, it would allow companies to protect themselves from secondary liability. Opponents of such measures think the accountability is strictly in the hands of the user, and not the company.

Still more to come....

Hi Ben Wickert,
I was looking for information about peer to peer file sharing when I came accross your blog. Defining a Middle Ground doesn't answer all of my questions but it sure looks like it'll be useful. I'm off to find more resources on peer to peer file sharing. Good luck and keep it up.

Blogging is still new to me Ben Wickert. I never heard of or knew what a blog was until about 6 months ago. Wow, there are so many of them it's amazing. Now they're everywhere. And it seems like everyone has one but me. I was looking for websites with info about file sharing. Then I decided to try blogs. Anyway, I'm trying to improve my site at http://www.p2p-mp3-filesharing.com for all the music and movie lovers out there, and was originally looking for relevant information I could use. Got sidetracked a lttle bit....lol. It was interesting. Thanks Ben Wickert, Mike
Hi and hello there Ben Wickert, I get sidetracked easily these days. After spending many hours checking out websites looking for file sharing related info. I decided to try some blog sites. I found much more usable and updated information on the blog related sites than the regular websites...this is very cool. I gotta get me one of these when I find the time. My site at http://www.p2p-mp3-filesharing.com needed some updated info. After that, I thought I would check out some of the other kind of blog sites. Some are pretty cool. It's been fun. Thanks Ben Wickert, mike

Ben Wickert,
I have been researching file sharing resources and I stumbled upon your blog. Although Defining a Middle Ground isn't what I was really after, it made a change from the usual run-of-the-mill blogs I normally seem to find. I'm going now to find more information on file sharing. Take care.
