I'm amazed by the argument of two Motley Fools that artists should embrace Napster because 'its good for them', helping publicize their work etc. Whether its good for them or not is not the issue - the issue is who gets to make that decision. If the artist decides to give it away, fine - but it should be the artist's decision, not Napster's. The crux of the matter is whether intellectual property that can be digitized is still the property of its creator. Keep in mind that the question extends far beyond music as we move into a world of many virtual dimensions.P.S. if you want to see a company that has made money off of protecting digital content, visit MVSN board.
