Have a cluestick

Dan Bricklin offers a cluestick with which to whack the record industry: The Recording Industry is Trying to Kill the Goose That Lays the Golden Egg

Record companies complain about the consolidation of radio station ownership and the cost of paying off radio stations to play their music so we can listen for "free" and figure out what we'd like to buy. At the same time they are trying to kill a goose that is laying a golden egg by fighting Digital Music Use rather than, as Forrester's Bernoff suggests, understanding and joining it. Worse yet, they are trying to use legislation to hobble computing in general to get what they incorrectly think they need.
