Jesus. They got LL Cool J to their artist victim.

His part is all about how intellectual property = actual property. Over and over again he spits out examples of "if there is a thing over there and I take it, is it right?!"

Chuck D was good though.

Yes the repetition of the same analogy was painful, although I think he settled a little when the questions began. Chuck D seemed like the only orator in the room, although was impressed both by Alan Morris and Derek Broes.
