I had a whole big rant written out about this, then my TPS Report-quality computer here at work crashed just before I posted it. So I’ll simply post this instead:
Yes, that’s right, Celine Dion is going to get paid because you use the internet. It’s before the Supreme Court right now, which means you and I don’t get any say in the matter. Read it and weep.
If this goes through, there’s only one solution: download every piece of music you can find. Install KaZaA Lite, BearShare and LimeWire. Don’t forget newsgroups! They’ve already declared us guilty, so what the hell. Double-indemnity.
