The excellent Wayne And Wax blog on the RIAA
versus Joel Tenenbaum case. For those not in the loop, Tenenbaum
has been found liable of sharing copyrighted music at a cost of
$22,500 per track. That's not a typo - $22,500 per track. Wayne
Marshall took part in the case as a witness, it seems, and his
insider info is well worth your time.
I wonder if there any tracks I pay that much for? I guess "Fight The Power" by Public Enemy, Hallogalo by Neu!, "Fisherman" by The Congoes, "Warpdrive" by DJ Crystl, "Good Morning Captain" by Slint. Perhaps one of those ultra-long John Coltrane Live In Japan tracks – at least that might help get my $22,500 dollars worth.
