Response to: I've invented a matter replicator

Humm.. well, here's my idea for what they could do (and i target this more to the RIAA and the MPAA than publishers like O'reilly, because i have no idea how much cash Tim is sitting on..) in the meantime..

They could use that massive mound of cash that they have collected over the years of ripping off customers. Yeah, maybe you don't, but i consider selling a CD with 1 or 2 good songs, the remaining being crap, a rip off. It's not like they're going to go out of business 6 months after people stop buying CDs, and even then it's abserd to think that people will just stop en mass. So what if that pile of cash gets a bit smaller while they adjust to changing times?

It's too bad they'd rather spend that pile of cash on lawyers, instead of some bright people to help them adjust..
