Metallica goes after Seattle ISP for copyright infringement.
I got this link from a pal-has anyone else heard about it?
The Brunching Shuttlecocks
are planning to follow Metallica
's lead in seeking out pirates of their MP3 music on Napster. They have different ideas about how to deal with said pirates, though.
Motley disses Metallica
Mister Sixx and pals give their response to Lars' crew, on the whole mp3/napster issue. Sounds like 2 groups of people are benefitting from all these lawsuits, lawyers and flash-cartoonists...
WTF!?! Everyone's favorite band (back in high school) Metallica is suing Napster and a handful of universities
for unlawful trading of their music. This is ridiculous, and I hope it doesn't set a precedence. If anyone would just slap a revenue model on napster
so artists could get paid for their work, none of this piracy crap would happen. And Metallica, what about the other apps that do the same thing
, are you going to sue them too? And what about every other band on earth? What do you expect to get out of universities, tighter controls over bandwidth, or student monitoring of internet usage? What about every cable modem and DSL provider that lets people use Napster, are you going after them too? Why don't you sue everyone on earth that's heard your songs but didn't pay for them? Side question: Is it better to burn out or fade away?
