I’m overall hesitant to highlight discussion of WaPo articles these days, what with their automagic listing of blogs that comment on an article in the sidebar, but this touches on a local business – XM – as well as a reporting style – overwrought – in our local paper, so I made an exception.
Concurring Opinions is a recent discover of mine and yesterday they wrote about an article from that day’s WaPo about the RIAA-XM lawsuit. it’s a good discussion of the issues and a very on-target indictment of writing about copyright issues in general. With many of us holding a poor opinion of RIAA and the music industry in general it’s easy to get worked up when talking about it, but as Boyden points out it’s not very productive. It’s an interesting read and an analysis of a lawsuit that could have a big impact on a big-name local business.
Plus, he makes a Groundhog Day reference. How do I pass that up?
