"Speaking at the iTunes Music Festival in London last night, to
an audience comprised largely of teenagers, Stephen Fry launched a
somewhat surprisingly ferocious attack on how the entertainment
industry tries to defend copyright interests in the digital
"Fry said that when it came to pursuing file sharers "my
business - the film business, the television business, the music
business - is doing the wrong thing".
"Fry thinks that it is preposterous to think that "someone who
bit-torrents an episode of 24 is the same as someone who steals
somebody's handbag". He has a good point, of course, but new
research might suggest that such actions are having results."
