It is designed to increase network speed, bandwidth, and the ability to share vast amounts of data quickly and easily, but according to copyright owners, the next-generation Internet known as Internet2 has also been facilitating illegal, unlicensed trading of copyrighted music and movie files. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) alleges the widespread downloading of pirated music and movies via the medium and is filing 405 lawsuits against students at 18 different U.S. colleges.

Greed, greed, greed, greed! I want my share!
Well the Internet2 has to make it's way here first. Then we have to stop this ADLS BS and go back to real SDSL 10MBps (minimum) connections at least to make this all work. But since every one wants their part, it'll be a long time before this happens.
China who has more people with DSL than the US is leaps and bounds ahead and all we can do is dream and the RIAA (cry) demand.
Get over yourselves kids. Technology will prevail over your greed. I know these guys they're scary. I've heard them talk, I've seen them work. Kinda like sons of Bush.

I plan to do my holiday shopping…
Online only -- I like the convenience and comfort.
Online only -- I'd shop in stores if their stock weren't so limited.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I like to see what I'm getting.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I enjoy the holiday shopping atmosphere.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I want to support local merchants.
Online and in stores -- I want the best of both worlds.
I'm not planning on doing any holiday shopping.
