Yesterday two MIT students announced a new scheme for sharing music on the MIT campus. They have 3500 CDs online, and students and staff at MIT use their web browswers to connect to the service. But then the actual music is sent out in analog form over the campus analog cable TV network. Since MIT is licensed already to play music over its analog distribution channels (and pays bulk royalties to do so), this appears to be entirely legal under current laws and licensing.
