Felten Interviewed by Business Week

BusinessWeek published an interview with Princeton Computer Science Professor Edward Felten that took place at the Future of Music Policy Summit. Dr. Felten is best known for challenging the anti-circumvention portions of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act through his lawsuit against the Recording Industry Association of America.

In the article, Felten says:

No one knows how to give customers [in the digital world] what they want without the copyright holders being stolen blind. The solution to the problem of illegal copying of music is mostly not a technology problem. I think there will be a movement toward offering different kinds of services. Interactive applications that help you find music you like, help you index and search, give you additional information about the artist you're listening to.
