    Record labels in piracy shocker!

    Record Labels Face $6 Billion Damages for Pirating Artists | TorrentFreak

    I wonder what their reasoning will be. I mean, if "we were going to pay them later" can work in court for the CRIA why not for everyone else?

    Ouch!

    I plug my Android phone into the PC and use it as a modem if I need filtered sites!

    For that to work for me, it would mean having to mobile 'phone.
    I love gadgets, but 'phones leave me cold.

    I could unblock it temporarily, but I don't suppose I should just so I can read that now.

    I will read it tonight at home though.

    According to SWGfL this is "Pornography and Illegal or Age-Restricted Activity".
    I wonder what their reasoning will be. I mean, if "we were going to pay them later" can work in court for the CRIA why not for everyone else?
    "Later" equating to 20 odd years in some cases.
    And this is "Non-Educational Games".

    Wonder if they'll block the CEOP website

    The sooner the big labels implode, the better.
    An explosion might be more appropriate for their being hoist with their own petards...

    Hmm first link isn't blocked here. Maybe I should investigate that.

    At least I know not to touch compilation CDs if I want to support an artist. Hency why I order the albums of small upcoming bands at their gigs so I know my cash is going towards them.

    Checking the following chart, you're not the only one with the same reasoning.

    I wonder if "prove that your label has the rights to put this on the compilation you're accusing me of ripping it off from" will work as a defence?
