  • The advocacy group Downhill Battle encourages consumers to share music freely, calling the current copyright system archaic and urging parents to let their children use filesharing applications rather than buy them music as gifts. We speak with the codirector of Downhill Battle about filesharing, copyright, and why you can no longer see the civil rights Documentary Eyes on the Prize.
