This post from Saskboy didn’t exactly warm my heart. $500/download? Isn’t the legit cost of a song ~$1? What’s the logic here? That I’ve made 500 copies and hidden them somewhere, that I’ve let at least 500 other people download it? On what basis is such an assumption made?
I think someone ought to start asking every MP that supports this kind of legislation about their own iPods and hard drives. Is everything on there legit? Can you prove it? What about your kids, what are they listening to, and more importantly, where did they get it?
