Sony Settling Copy-Protection Class Action

And as the ongoing (and, gotta admit, really really enjoyable) saga of Sony's copy protection/spyware debacle continues, there has been an announcement that Sony is settling the consumer class action, with terms including replacement cd's, free downloads, and $7.50 per user. Of course, they still have to deal with at least one state Attorney General, plus ongoing problems with other cd's flawed by a different (but apparently equally destructive) spyware...

...And in other (but far more disturbing) news, the Department of Justice has responded to the news reports that the Bush Administration has been illegally spying on U.S. citizens by... yes, investigating the source of the leak.

Enjoy the new year... another year under the most corrupt and evil administration in U.S. history. Hurrah.

Mind you, I like my music to be intelligent and even literary at times, but this album feels like an English lit college lecture from a long-winded professor. Now, the last thing I need is a barrage of hate mail from rabid Indigo Girls fans, but here goes: this album, and almost everything else they've recorded, is dull pedantry (look it up).

umn, ok, except i'm too lazy and or stupid to find a dictionary and learn what pedantry means. i love that your top 50 list is 95% guys singing. way to go. :-)

happy new year.
