The Globe and Mail has been publishing a fascinating series called the Download Decade that tries to tackle the economic, social, legal, cultural consequences of the technologies that have allowed end users to download, rip, mash up and share digital music.
The series content is appearing in numerous formats: paper, on the Web, on iTunes, on YouTube, in torrents, and on a wiki.
As Michel de Montaigne would say, "Je vais au change indiscrètement et tumultuairement - mon style et mon esprit vont vagabondant de même" (Essais, III, 9, De la vanité): I go where my fancy leads me, but my fancy always leads back to the law
