HOW THE MUSIC INDUSTRY WORKS: Having threatened Universities across the US and bounced them into tying up with Napster, it now turns out that all students at Wright State are going to wind up paying a Napster subscription, whether they own a computer or not. Why don't the RIAA just make everyone send them ten dollars a month?

$10 a month? Isn't that something along the lines of the BBC's fee?

Not really; everyone in the UK benefits from the BBC, only one person in a household has to pay for a TV licence.

In this situation, everyone would have to pay for Napster, not everyone would benefit from it.
