    I find it amusing that Sony is saying "don't legalise it, it will encourage piracy", yet they're selling MP3 players :rolleyes:

    I heard some bigwig at Sony comment on this and basically he said that there was a market there (in MP3 players) and so Sony was going to go after it. Basically I think he was trying to say that they knew they were already losing money and didn't want to basically lose more by ignoring a market.
