Information and telecommunications technologies have profoundly altered the distribution channels available for a wide range of goods and services. In this paper we analyze a particular class of products, information goods and develop a first framework for predicting which information goods are most likely to see their production, distribution, and consumption patterns altered by the net, which are likely to see shifts in power and profitability, and which are likely to remain unchanged for the foreseeable future.

The music industry, described in breezy prose in John Alderman's Sonic Boom: MP3, Napster, and the New Pioneers of Music, is coming under intense pressure from Internet-based technologies that challenge traditional property rights. Industry executives are denouncing the upstarts, but Napster and companies like it are actually producing efficiency, not anarchy. To understand the full force of the Napster challenge, reviewer Clay Shirky says, one has to look beyond Sonic Boom's collage of people and events. Music has always been a business of high fixed costs and low marginal costs, and Internet technology is reducing marginal costs to practically zero. Before Napster, music industry executives assumed they would apply traditional per-unit pricing to sales over the Internet.
Technology and Culture
Whenever you allow other users to pull information from your computer, or you pull information from another user's computer, you're opening the door to viruses , privacy invasions and a host of other security issues. Kazaa has often been accused of installing spyware and adware on its users' machines to monitor their movements throughout the Web and to download ads to their computer without their knowledge. The old version of the software came bundled with spyware and adware code, and although they were optional, removing these additions during the download process was complicated. Today the company asserts that it does not collect or use personal information about its users. To prevent downloading of sensitive information, Kazaa advises its users to set up a special "My Shared Files" folder on their desktop. Then, when people try to download a file, they can only have access to the shared folder, rather than being allowed to wander freely across the individual's hard drive.
By John Alderman. Cambridge, Mass. It has been said that ever since the invention of the first mechanical instrument, the hurdy-gurdy, the history of music has been about getting rid of the musicians. Perhaps one day it will be said that the history of recording was ultimately about getting rid of the record. Over the first century of sound recording, the technology used to record and reproduce music underwent one revolution after another, each time promising the consumer either improved sound quality or ease of use, while record companies reaped ever greater profits. Whereas new listening formats—from cylinder to shellac disk, vinyl LP, cassette and eight-track tape, compact disk—were introduced by the record industry, the latest revolution comes from consumers, bringing transformative consequences for musicians and composers, but mostly for the record companies that failed, or refused, to see it coming. By giving rise to the free trading of music over the Internet, digital compression technologies like MP3 have revolutionized the listening experience not necessarily for the better and undermined the importance not only of records but also of the empires built upon them.

Where Napster Is Taking the Publishing World
Napster is a set of three music-focused online services. It was founded in as a pioneering peer-to-peer P2P file sharing Internet software that emphasized sharing digital audio files, typically audio songs, encoded in MP3 format. As the software became popular, the company ran into legal difficulties over copyright infringement. It ceased operations and was eventually acquired by Roxio. Napster became an online music store until it was merged with Rhapsody from Best Buy  on December 1,
Free distribution over the Internet will revolutionize not just the music industry but all of publishing. Bad news? Maybe not—the end result could actually be more revenue, not less, for companies with the courage to focus on developing talent rather than on pushing units.
Сегодняшний день стал для него днем сплошных фиаско.
Там его дожидается лирджет. Прогремел выстрел. Пуля ударила в асфальт в нескольких метрах позади. Беккер оглянулся. Убийца целился, высунувшись из окна. Беккер вильнул в сторону, и тут же боковое зеркало превратилось в осколки. Он почувствовал, как этот удар передался на руль, и плотнее прижался к мотоциклу.
Сообщите, когда узнаете. Телефонистка поклонилась и вышла. Нуматака почувствовал, как расслабляются его мышцы.
