Re: <nettime> Terror in Tune Town



> what about: "property is theft" - j.j. rousseau ...

Hmm. just re-reading this thread after Felix's excellent comments and I
found this quote. Actually the quote, which is most relevant here is the
one on the pamphlett by Proudhon (sp?) which goes "Property is theft. 
Property is freedom". Lots of people, it seems, love to leave that last
sentence off. 

However as a musician, I don't find much positive development in either
Napster, or its trenchant corporate opposition. It, and others eg MP3.com
etc, are just the *new* record company; one that doesn't ever pay its
artists anything. Its just corporations fighting other corporations with
rarely a thought of the people they claim to represent.
