Following up the internet2 talk of last night:
Question:Jim Rogers, University of Missouri-Columbia, The Maneater: Is the RIAA considering action against Internet2 itself, rather than simply users of the network?
Cary Sherman:We have no problem with Internet2. It is a neutral network that is capable of outstanding beneficial uses. It just happens to be being misused by some file-sharers who think it's a convenient way to steal music. We hope to work with Internet2 to see if there are technical steps that can be taken to reduce the vulnerability to abuse of the network.
This is from a press conference the RIAA held about suing the i2 users. So what he is saying is that i2 could be used for good, so it is ok. Doesn't this sound the exact opposite of what they are saying about Grokster?
