"Do as I say, not as I do" says Lego in this Wired piece. While its perfectly acceptable for a corporation to abuse the intellectual property of a culture, its completely another thing when the culture "abuses" the corporation's intellectual property. I'll never figure some of these things out. I wonder what RIAA would have said if Fanning had stated that he would "continue to welcome viewpoints from both sides of the argument" and would be receptive to reasonable requests from RIAA regarding Napster's use of their intellectual property. I can't wait for the first lawyerly person to tell me I'm off-base because "its a different situation".
