Lessig And RIAA Answer NewsHour Questions

neildogg Re:The RIAA guy is an idiot... (888 comments)

Well let's not be idiots, and actually carry over this argument that the RIAA guy presents into the real world. In the real world, we can recreate cars ourselves if we have a lot of car know-how. Now is this taking away money from the original manufacturer? Most certainly. I understand that it's at a greater cost to the user than downloading an MP3 is, but this same argument carries over. Is it wrong to recreate a car? I mean you can buy old cobra body kits... Yet in this example wouldn't it be painfully obvious that the end user is better off getting the original?
