the public have received sufficient education to know that sharing music is wrong, apparently So will they stop suing people? Or is that thought a step too far? :+

“So will they stop suing people? Or is that thought a step too far?” Well they’ve got to prop up their sagging sales somehow! And since they can’t convince people to keep buying albums they own on SACD / DVD, this’ll just have to do.
