Lawmakers prepare digital music bill
Music & MP3
'Long live Napster. Or its idea, anyway. Two Capitol Hill lawmakers are getting ready to introduce legislation that would loosen copyright laws to help legitimate, Internet-based music services get up and running without the threat of being shut down by the courts for infringement.'

I could have sworn that somebody had already introduced this bill (or a similar bill). In fact I wrote about it, but now I can't find it. At any rate, if this could pass (ha ha!), it would certainly crack open the debate, which (at least in Congress) has been so blatently corporate that you'd think that even Congresscritters would start to get queasy.
