Filesharing if the RIAA Win

Clay Shirky’s latest article, File-sharing Goes Social is an interesting look at where filesharing might go should the RIAA lawsuit bandwagon eventually cause Kazaa and similar networks to degenerate to the point of uselessness.

I don’t think its a done deal that these RIAA lawsuits will force even the “Connectors” to shut down (they seem to have largely ignored the threat so far) as there is an awful lot of them but the future he envisions is a definite possibility.
