From the Butt Head File – A Sony exec at a conference in Long Beach California, when asked about his company’s fight against Napster said:

“The [music] industry will take whatever steps it needs to protect itself and protect its revenue streams. It will not lose that revenue stream, no matter what.” … “Sony is going to take aggressive steps to stop this. We will develop technology that transcends the individual user. We will firewall Napster at source — we will block it at your cable company, we will block it at your phone company, we will block it at your [Internet-service provider]. We will firewall it at your PC.”

This guy is a moron – First of all, he obviously has no idea how the internet works. And second, I think rcade at metafilter said it best: “Any music company that is basing its business plan on the ability to stop Napster and its ilk is completely fucked.”
