ColdWetDog writes: Ars is running perhaps the oddest copyright story ever. A small company called BlueBeat.com has decided that storing another copy of a copyrighted song (In this case, the Beatles) allows them to submit this new "performance" for copyright (which of course is owned by BlueBeat) and sell it legally. For $0.25 a track. Nice price. Weird lawyers. RIAA is not amused.
Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to
be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
