Hollywood faces digital headache
BBC Sci-Tech "pop" story says, "Sharing songs over the internet has been a headache for the record industry, but this year the focus looks set to shift to the film industry." Not much news here for NewsForge readers, but an interesting look at how the mainstream (in this case British) media looks at file sharing. At least this story doesn't use the silly word "piracy" to describe people passing digital files back and forth.
