Voluntary campus-wide music licenses could stop the lawsuits

It takes a special knee-jerk churliness to jackboot the music industry in the proverbial groin every time it comes up with a new idea...

"I think it's fantastic that WMG is willing to explore these options, and I think that universities offer a unique place to experiment with these ideas," said the EFF's Fred von Lohmann in an e-mail to Ars Technica.

Von Lohmann knows whereof he speaks; the man has been a gadfly on the music business for years and is the author of the EFF's "A Better Way Forward" plan for... voluntary collective licensing that would pool money and distribute it to labels and artists.
