This article does a very good job of summarizing the current outrages of the Recording Industry Association of America. The interesting question is whether Professor Felten, knowing that the gist of his research was publically available anyway, sucked the RIAA in by rapidly giving in to their threats and agreeing to censor his scientific research. Certainly the RIAA's panicky response indicates that the leaders of the RIAA are afraid they've been well and truly snookered.
