Just as I thought that American business was being run by what Berke Breathed would refer to as "corporate booger-heads", along comes someone who really seems to understand the opportunities of the new marketplace.


Up to now, this point of view has been tainted (in the eyes of the aforementioned corporate types) by the fact that it has been presented by the users of P2P networks, or by academics and free-speech hacktivists. These could easily be dismissed as not being seriously involved in "the realities of business life".


So, Mr. O'Reilly, thanks for showing us that there are people seriously involved in the realities of the content creation business who have a clue.
