    Not to mention ironic.

    Lawsuit seeks millions from Canadian labels


    So if you get prosecuted for illegal downloading just claim that you fully intended to pay the copyright holder - once you'd identified who that was - at some unspecified future date. :lol:

    Will they settle for a sincere apology? [​IMG]


    If not, will they take a cheque? (Don't cash it 'til Monday though)

    I had recently had an interesting conversation about copyright, specifically that of the "Happy Birthday" song. snopes.com: Happy Birthday Copyright
    That may be the reason why the restaurants don't have their waiters sing the traditional "Happy Birthday" song.

    Interesting story. I didn't know that. But for the record, I've had the traditional happy birthday song sung to me in a restaurant.
