Plausible scenario on the impact of P2P on the Entertainment Industry and Future of Media. What do you think?

Hardball assessment of the future of media

Many people have predicted that peer-to-peer file-sharing will change the face of media, but this paper by Scott Jensen is the most thoroughgoing research I’ve seen into the commercial and artistic effects that peer-to-peer can potentially lead to. The paper is bold and futuristic, which means there are plenty of places the path it lays out could be sidetracked, but I think it’s important reading. It makes me a little afraid to work for an old-style publication company, even one as innovative as O’Reilly & Associates.
