Don’t Stop File-Sharing, Says Former Pink Floyd Manager

Barence writes “The former manager of Pink Floyd has labelled attempts to clamp down on music file-sharing as a “waste of time”. “Not only are they a waste of time, they make the law offensive. They are comparable to prohibition in the US in the 1920s,” said Peter Jenner, who’s now the emeritus president of the International Music Managers’ Forum. “It’s absurd to expect ordinary members of the public to think about what they’re allowed to do [with CDs, digital downloads, etc]… and then ask themselves whether it’s legal or not.” The comments come as Britain’s biggest ISP, BT, said it was confident that Britain’s Digital Economy Act — which could result in file-sharers losing their internet connection — would be overturned in the courts, because it doesn’t comply with European laws on privacy.”
