Do you really think you will be able to charge royalties for files on the internet? It is exactly like Napster. There will be many other ways to get the same items, there are still many ways to get mp3s. The internet is limitless as is technology, that will never change unless the internet is completely eliminated, which can never happen. The internet started something you guys thought would never happen, and now it's turned around and bit you by surprise. It's too late now.
