  washingtonpost.com: Entertainment Industry Reaffirms Anti-P2P Stance
The recording and motion picture industries filed legal arguments with the Supreme Court late Monday urging the justices to declare Internet file-sharing services illegal under existing copyright law.
Echoing arguments that have been rejected twice by lower courts, a brief submitted by the Recording Industry Association of America and Motion Picture Association of America said the makers of two popular peer-to-peer services -- Morpheus and Grokster -- should be held accountable for the rampant illegal downloading of copyrighted works committed by their users.
Entertainment industry lawyers today conceded that their argument isn't terribly different from those rejected by the lower courts.

 Senator brutalizes Intel rep for resisting CPRM | The Register
Entertainment industry lapdog Senator Fritz Hollings (Democrat, South Carolina) lashed out at Intel executive VP Leslie Vadasz who warned that the copy-protected PCs Hollings is obediantly promoting on behalf of his MPAA and RIAA handlers would stifle growth in the marketplace.
This is of course the entertainment industry's dream, as it seeks to hobble all equipment so that it can determine when, where and how its content can be enjoyed by consumers.
So when Intel's Vadasz showed the spine to blast the entertainment industry's pet scheme, he had to be beaten down, and Hollings was of course eager to please his masters.
