Isn't this an old story?

Right - typical comment from someone whose understanding of copyright-law is for how it was pre-DRM-law. I liked this quote best: ""Some of them have no pensions and need this money," he said." Shouldn't have squandered it on booze and fags then eh? :-) Cheers, Dave (Personal opinion only.) - Sent via the backstage.bbc.co.uk discussion group.
