  • Harvard Business Review: MPAA/RIAA Biggest threat to US tech innovation.

    This is classic. Something I'm very passionate about and excited to see HBR stand up and take notice;

    Innovation has emerged as a key means by which the US can pull itself out of this lackluster economy. In the State of the Union, President Obama referred to China and India as new threats to America's position as the world's leading innovator. But the threats are not just external. One of the greatest threats to the US's ability to innovate lies within: specifically, with the music and movie business. These Big Content businesses are attempting to protect themselves from change so aggressively that they risk damaging America's position as a world leader in innovation.

    They're completely out of touch with reality. Why else would they expect $75 trillion from Limewire?

      Digital piracy will not (and cannot) be brought under control. It can only be adapted to and mass criminalizing audience and consumer behaviour is the wrong approach.

        Exactly. We need to stop being treated like criminals and the MPAA needs to start looking at utilizing technology and responding to consumer demand to fill an obvious need. They need to work WITH technology companies that are creating new and innovative methods of content distribution and ALLOW those companies to make money for their contributions to the digital supply chain.

        I'd write more.. But you sucked up too much of my free time tonight with the other thread that you created. :)

          Very interesting article, thanks for posting. I always have been under the impression that the RIAA/MPAA do not understand technology very well and are slow to adapt to it. This article has confirmed that.

            Trey Parker and Matt Stone (creators of South Park for the 3-4 people that don't know) had a clip from an interview making its rounds on the Internet a few weeks ago regarding the MPAA. As always, they make some extremely poignant statements about the subject.
