'Having followed the copyright industry for so long, I'm often shocked at the
incredible sense of entitlement of those who argue strictly for greater and
greater copyright powers. One thing we've discussed in the past is that the
gatekeepers (and it always is the gatekeepers) have an issue of constantly
overvaluing the content and undervaluing the service. That is, any time they
see a new service come along that the public really likes, they insist that all
or nearly all of the value must be attributable to the content and not the
service. Thus, they will always argue that "the service" is somehow ripping
them off.'
