Is this the end of an Era?

With the advent of RIAA law suits and more along the way, is this the end of the Computer Home Entertainment Center as we now know it? More and more I hear the argument there is no excuse for people claiming innocence of wrongdoing on their computers. It seems to me at least part of the problem is in the marketing of computers. To fulfill Bill Gates’ vision of a computer in every household manufacturers have increasingly promoted their wares as a home entertainment system. Power users understand it is a work tool but to the vast majority of people out there it is only a home entertainment system, a convenience for online banking or a diary, and they do not understand its potential for criminal use. The fault rests with the industry for promoting it as a convenient fun station, and perhaps it will have to change its marketing strategy rather than rely on the RIAA’s thugs to educate the public. What do you think?
