I hope they go after these disgusting “public libraries” next. Imagine: Anyone can just go in, read a book FOR FREE, while the authors, illustrators (and most importantly, Publishers) get paid NOTHING.

Not to mention those revolting AM and FM radio stations, where you can hear music for free while the songwriters and artists get nothing from those doing the listening!

I agree on your library analogy, but the radio think, they jam commercials down our throats to pay for the radio station and royalties, so we don’t pay it for it directly, but indirectly by listening to the stupid things… or you buy satellite radio and pay for it to be commercial free.

What CEO or official hasn’t tried to get rid of the evidence nowdays and all they get is a slap on the wrist. His biggest crime was he was a little guy v. RIAA/MPA.

Nobody is going to pay 110 million dollars. They will just go bankrupt that’s all.
