    BP damages vs Limewire damages - discuss

    Moderately interesting point that BP is getting charged $69m for the cleanup of its oil spill. Meanwhile, filesharing service Limewire is getting sued for $1bn. Because intellectual property is worth more than the planet, right?

    Two completely unrelated issues if you ask me.

    The Limewire issue is stupid anyway. Too many people expect too much for free, it doesn't matter how loaded you think the music industry is... they have a legal claim to their recordings and that's it. If you don't want to pay for it that's fine... just don't have it. It's not like you'll die if you go without it.
