Oh how progresive. Let the bankers kill the country and kill the fileswapper. I have lost all respect for Bono too, apparently he feels we should be using China’s internet control methods in the free world. Bono=Boner. If they charged what these songs are worth, 15 or 20 cents a pop, people wouldn’t bother stealing them.

Not worth downloading, even if they were free.
What difference does it make anyways, like he’s ever going to pay the fine, those idiots. I don’t bother to download music, not much today worth downloading to me, I haven’t even bought a CD in like a year.
I do listen to HD radio quite a bit at home and in the car here. My favorite station has a cool locals only channel that plays some really good stuff that for the most part nobody will ever hear. It’s too bad some of these excellent local acts will never get any air play outside of my little station here.
OK, so let’s see if I can get this right. The government says that there is unlimited suing potential for copyrighted materials. But if some idiot doctor leaves crap in me, I can only sue for a certain amount. Seems like someones priorities are quite screwed up.
