p2pnet news view Advertising | Music:- “Do we live in totally different universes â Us and Them?” – wondered p2pnet when Reuters revealed albums from Paul McCartney and Guns N’ Roses were to “debut online on MySpace”.
McCartney hasn’t done anything worth listening to since the Beatles disbanded, and Chinese Democracy from the digusting Guns N’ Roses is already online, said the story.
That was because of search sites such as isoHunt and MiniNova —-
—- and The Pirate Bay, whose owners are currently wondering when the copyright lawsuit brought against them by the entertainment industry will be declared null and void because of what Rick Falkvinge of Sweden’s Pirate Party called “corruption on a completely unforgivable level”.
The verdict, jail time for Peter Sunde Kolmisoppi, Frederik Neij, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg and Carl LundstrÃ¶m, together with a $3.59 million financial hit for alleged copyright infringements, was fair, opined Paul McCartney.
But it’s likely to be ruled a mistrial because because of the presiding judge’s alleged extracurricular activities.
Meanwhile, “Ok,” says Real World person in a Reader’s Write, going on »»»
For those who even care to know. The Beatles lost $100 million for the rights to market t-shirts, lunch boxes, etc. Paul McCartney has lost more money for his WORK than any of you will ever earn.
He made a statement about new artists and new bands. He feels that it would be nice for them to earn a living from the works that they create. If they can`t, then they will not enjoy the luxury of creating more music.
He didn`t whine about losing a bazillion dollars in his lifetime. I would rather have him control the use of his OWN songs in the future. The day that his copyrights expire, you will see how cheap and abused the music will be. You will be sickened by the grotesque commercialism exercised into your home 24/7. I can live with a Nike Revolution shoe commercial.
Just wait until they are playing Beatles songs on feminine hygiene commercials. Or a trojan ad with Happiness is a warm gun or come together. We can work it out on a therapists ad . Followed by.. Hello/Goodbye on a divorce lawyer`s ad. Your mother should know .on a Pro-Life proposition. Get Back on an anti-immigration proposition. Carry that Weight on a Jenny Craig ad.
“Hmm,” adds the commment post, “maybe some won`t be so bad ”
