Bram Janssen has an interesting post discussing why he thinks that the RIAA and other monopolies suffer a sort of corporate insanity.
Here’s is the Wikipedia definition of insanity:
Insanity (sometimes, madness) is the condition of being in some way mentally “out of touch” with the real world or with “normal” human functioning, often assumed to be a result of a mental illness. A person may be said to be insane for a number of reasons. In many countries’ legal systems, insanity is a legal category, designating a person as either unaware of their actions, or aware of them but unable to determine whether those actions are right or wrong.
Sounds eerily familiar, doesn’t it? Somebody call the men with the oversized butterfly nets please.
