From an article on Kuro5hin.org:

Music sales in Germany have been in decline for the last five years, dropping 11% last year, and German copyright holders seem to think digital copying might have something to do with it. As Gerd Gebhardt, president of Bundesverband Phono (Germany's RIAA), asked: "If it were possible tomorrow to copy bread rolls, does anyone doubt that that would mean a major economic problem for the baking industry?"

Well, we wouldn't want a major economic problem for the baking industry, even if it meant that nobody ever died of hunger again. This is a terrible analogy. Do people have no sense?

I'm going to bed. I've seen enough for one day.
