Saturday, December 04, 2004 - P2P here to stay: Music companies must get real "The international music recording companies are spending millions of dollars in legal fees these days. Their target - the online file swapping business that is allowing consumers around the world to avoid buying CDs by downloading songs and even complete albums for next to nothing. But the aggressive tactics of the record companies' lobby group, the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) and its US counterpart in trying to close down file swapping of music seem doomed to failure. Until the music recording industry comes to grip with the fact that its product is too expensive, the file swappers - P2P traffic as it is called - will grow their market."
