Professor Michael Carrier has published the results of a remarkable initiative on copyright and innovation that uses the music industry and Napster as the case study.
Carrier interviewed leading executives at major record labels and technology companies in an effort to better understand the implications of the litigation strategy against Napster. The article concludes that there were five losses from the Napster decision and related litigation: lost innovation, lost venture capital, lost markets, lost licensing, and lost magic.
