Perhaps Lessig overstated his case using the guns and copy machine analogy. However, CrayHorse says, "Napster is only used to help people steal music without paying for it." I have bought at least 10 copies of my favorite album. Six were in LP form, two in Compact Cassette, and two in CD. Each time, I purchased a new copy to replace a worn or lost older copy. When I download music from that album, who is being ripped off?
If I had been able to make a perfect copy of my LP or CD, I probably would have kept it safe, and used it when my copy became worn. That I downloaded a song on the album from Napster instead of buying yet another copy does not mean I am stealing it.
