    That if you are the creator of a work of art that you should have some rights over how it is reproduced and distributed.

    This is really a battle between the MPAA, record companies, film studies and the like against their own distribution network, which they feel -- perhaps correctly -- is not cutting them in on profits that are rightfully theirs.

    The thing is:

    People have been desperate for streaming media since Napster hit the Internet. The corporate entertainment complex was unable for years and years to give consumers what they wanted: instant movies and music via the Internet.

    They are still fighting the trend, rather than embracing it and figuring out how to make more money from it.
