In 1999, a file-sharing program created in a Boston dorm room sent shockwaves across the music industry and served notice that a major cultural shift was underway. Seeing a fundamental threat to its long-profitable business model, the record industry took to the courts to shut down the upstart company. But a generation of consumers had tasted a new way to get what they wanted -- today's music industry, and the musicians themselves, are still grappling with the Culture of Free.

As someone who lives abroad, Yahoo 'News' deeply disturbs me. I think that they have two very irresponsible practices:
1) They often change headlines to exact news stories to make it appear that their are new developments in the existing story. During times of escalating tensions between the two Koreas, I have seen this practice cause more panic than needed among people who want to know the story
2) very closely related, they often change the text of stories, which greatly impacts the comments left by users. There are times when you wonder if the person even read the same article that your read. Many times, in many ways, they did not. They read a previous version of the story. I think they should start fresh when they make very major edits.
With that said, I think that their content is much less nationalistic and simply more professional in the past three months. I also like this small area of quality videos
