file sharing debate

The Oxford Union is "the most famous debating society in the world." They had a recent debate under the proposition that:
This House believes that "the free music mentality is a threat to the future of music."
Arguing for the proposition were Jay Berman, President of the International Federation of Phonographic Industries (IFPI); Hillary Rosen, head of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA); and Chris Wright, CEO of Chrysalis. This synopsis of the debate is an amusing look at some of the hightlights and some of the "oops" moments. (via bOing bOing).
