This paper seeks a resolution between the need to eliminate copyright infringement and the desire to encourage new technology. This paper will suggest that the music industry would be better off directing resources toward solutions such as compulsory licensing, royalty collection, and working with hardware manufacturers to discourage copyright infringement. These solutions would allow the industry to take advantage of file sharing now rather than expending resources in court where the desired result of ending P2P programs may never come.
