Two great articles on MP3 downloading

I just read two great articles from household name artists on the issues involved in MP 3 downloading and the reaction of the music industry.
The first from Courtney Love in which she explains how the record industry and particularly the labels really do not work for the artists.
The second article from Janis Ian with a slightly different slant on the issues but with the same conclusions.
Both articles are quite long but well worth reading.
