New Tech Stymied by Copyright Law

http://j.mp/Re9pMR  (Science Daily)

  "Carrier says it's impossible to say exactly which innovations have
   experienced roadblocks because they never publicly surfaced, "But
   industry leaders made clear to me that there are numerous innovations
   that failed to reach the market because of copyright laws," he says.
   In his research, funded by a Google Research Award received last year,
   Carrier points to Napster as the first instance of a peer-to-peer
   service being liable for violating the copyright laws. Users of the
   service were able to share music digitally, but questions of copyright
   infringement surrounded the company and court rulings forced it to
   cease operations. It is now owned by Rhapsody."
