Who controls the use of creative content

Perplexed, informed, conflicted--Outstanding sources regarding the ethical, economic and legal issues related to music, print copyrights and intellectual property.
In the last several days on Metafilter there has been extended discussions regarding the copyright, intellectual and economic issues related to file sharing, piracy, using borrowing and control of creative content--particularly music and original print content. The discussion focused on what rights the artist and/or their agent has to control the (future) use of their creative content. I am not looking to rehash the discussion but I am looking for outstanding and excellent discussions and analysis of the issues. I hope it would contain the pro's and con's of different legal, ethical and economic perspectives on the issue. As I am traveling I would appreciate on line resources. While I have my own biases I hope to expand my understanding. Thanks for any help.
