U.S. urges China to "put people in jail" over IP infringement. An interesting tidbit from my pharma class today: patents provide the right not only to prevent U.S. companies from producing infringing items, but also to prevent the importation of such items from countries where it is otherwise legal. It's often said by industry and government that our content industries are in peril because of foreign, particularly Chinese, disregard for IP, but it's also true that preventing the reimporation of alternatives allowed in foreign countries harms all U.S. industry.

Downloads overtake singles. The single was dead anyway.

Peercasting, P2P television, moves forward.
