I've heard a number of these historic anecdotes. Resisting and denouncing change has been with humanity from time immemorial. Despite fine stories to help us understand the folly of it, each generation still experiences privileged incumbents using fear of change as their excuse for perpetuating their privilege.

Each time I see an article like this, I wonder whether today's legislators realise the position they are taking protecting the interests of the lobbyists around them are both untypical of their predecessors and also harmful to their constituents.

Well worth reading this article. The TV programme 'Glee' features a singing club as the backdrop for a situational drama. Despite the fact that the music industry would sue a club like this off the face of the earth if they ever actually did the things in the story lines, the series never ever confronts either the insurmountable challenge of obtaining copyright clearance or the heartache of being victimised by the music industry as punishment for unauthorised creativity and glee.

"Guns'n'Roses: the band whose street team does jail time" - that sounds like a great tag line for them, I hope they like it. Other bands might be happier to have their stuff promoted virally, of course.
