I wouldn't find this all so troubling if their arguments were not so absurd. The Copyright Alliance in particular prances around with the ideals of Laissez-faire on their pamphlets and in their soundbites , but their entire purpose is to increase the government's role in regulating their industry. A bit of a contradiction, no? I'd stop consuming if I thought it would get the message across. But they'd just cite my absence as an increase in piracy. Speaking of which, since when are an industry's goods or services guaranteed success? How can they blame failure unequivocally on the consumer? Where is the corporate accountability to meet their clients' demand?
