Does this strike you as odd?

I was reading a post by Jeffery Veen when I ran into this interesting technique by the music industry to control their intellectual property rights in P2P networks. If the recording industry broke down the doors of a shop and busted all bootlegs that they found in the shop I'm sure they would've done something illegal. The difference here is that they're not destroying anything that belongs to someone else. They're just flooding the "market" with a broken copy of something that they own. If you can't beat them subvert them? Strange world.
