And this is why I have no problem pirating stuff. Even if you did buy legit, the artist will STILL not get their money and I refuse to add to the RIMDOJ (RIAA\ICE\MPAA\DOJ) "politician buying fund". This type of behavior is not just limited to the recording industry. Until RIMDOJ creates a business model that is fair to both the consumer and the artist, they will not see a single dollar from me.
BOYCOTT GODADDY! Apparently they didn't get enough of the public's wrath with the SOPA issue. So, they took down a client's domain without hesitation or any prior notice on a questionable claim? Wow. If this is how Godaddy runs its business then any domain that is registered there is subject to suspension at the drop of a hat. Godaddy seems to just roll over when any legacy company or the government pokes it with a stick. Why not stick up for your clients or at least give them a "heads up" when there is a complaint about them? Perhaps Godaddy can't do that as it seems their head has been placed directly up their collective ass.
If that were true, I don't think techdirt would be as popular as it is with this many registered users and readers who visit this site. Even if he does exaggerate from time to time, is that not his right to free speech? The legacy industries certainly exercise that right, daily. Plus, you're assuming that people don't have common sense and therefore just believe whatever Mike puts in front of us.
You might believe that Mike uses hyperbole as a tool for deception and to dupe the weak minded, but alas, here you are posting on his site. lol
