Congressman Rick Boucher inaugurated day three of O'Reilly's P2P conference by outlining how he wants to improve the legal exchange of online music by enacting laws that are fair for customers, artists, and record companies. Later that morning, the authors of the "P2P Networking Overview" research report held a press conference discussing the state of P2P now, and what's in store for the future.
