A BIG FAT THANKS TO RECORD EXECS
Thank you for fighting the good fight against Internet MP3 file-swapping. Because of you, millions of kids will stop wasting time listening to new music and seeking out new bands. No more spreading the word to complete strangers about your artists. No more harmful exposure to thousands of bands via Internet radio, either. With any luck, they won't talk about music at all. You probably knew you'd make millions embracing the technology. After all, the kids swapping were like ten times more likely to buy CD's, making your cause all the more admirable. It must have cost a bundle in future revenue, but don't worry - computers are just a fad anyway, and the Internet is just plain stupid. - Rolling Stone Magazine
