Well, Slashdot news anyway.

"TonyPyGarthno writes "Facing a veritable who's who of the music-copyright
wars, Chairman Hatch threatened -- in surprisingly direct terms -- to force
the music labels and publishers, by legislation, to make their content
digitally available for a standard fee if the record business continued to
ensnarl e-music with lawsuits. As a capper, Hatch suggested that Congress
might even go so far as to offer its own comprehensive definition of 'fair
use' to hasten the arrival of paid digital music -- an action that would
have implications far beyond music. "
