Neil T.

Even if she hadn't died, I'd still find it hard to believe that an 83-year-old woman was some kind of evil music pirate.


I spent some of the best years of my life in the music bidness. Yes, they can be that evil. But only by accident, because being that evil actually requires some smarts, and that they have not got.


I lack Lex' experience, but nevertheless wonder: why is it hard to believe that the minions of RIAA could be that sleazy?


This kind of stuff will continue so long as our "protectors" in Washington give companies virtually open access to our data without any expectation of responsible use or regard for our individual rights. Is anybody surprised? Does anybody expect this to change in Washington? Perhaps if watchdog organizations had the same access to political campaign databases and fundraising lists the value of privacy and presumption of innocence might have more meaning to our esteemed legislators.

Daniel Austin do they expect to get a writ of habeus corpus in this case? The 'corpus' is corpsed, finitum. Dead people, whales, and trees have no standing in court. This will be thrown out, instantum.
