New Soap: The Pirate Bay

Have you all been following the Pirate Bay case? It's completely fascinating! I didn't follow the Napster trial very closely back in the day, but from what I remember there are some key differences between then and now. For a start, the "win" for TPTB doesn't feel at all like a win. I'm not sure what to make of it all yet, but I'm completely enthralled. It's better than a soap.

In somewhat related news, the BBC are in discussions with YouTube to show Beeb content in its entirety. Judging by the article, they still haven't quite got their distribution philosophy right for the digital era, but closer, closer.
