Kudos to the students who aren't backing down in the face of a lawsuit by the music "majors", whose representative body is sueing the kids to the tune (sorry) of $150,000 US per song.
In the early days of the net, a quote (attributed to John Gilmore) often bandied around was that "the internet sees censorship as damage, and routes around it." I believe that this still holds true. The music industry may try to call the downloading of music "theft", but that's because it's in their interest to do so. Listen to music isn't theft, and prohibiting someone from downloading songs via the web is censorship -- which, for the time being at least, the internet still impressively resists.
