Insurance Policies For File Sharing?
from the and-a-t-shirt dept
There isn’t much detail on this (speaking Swedish might help), but in a Slashdot collection of posts, if you scroll down a bit, there’s a short blurb about an insurance company in Sweden that is supposedly selling insurance policies to protect people from RIAA lawsuits. The best way to not get sued, of course, is not to share files (though, even that doesn’t always work). However, if you really must keep sharing, the company is supposedly offering a $19/year policy where they’ll pay any fines you get from the RIAA and (here’s the good part) give you a t-shirt. While it’s basically an amusing gimmick, it does, perhaps, give you a sense of what some folks think the market price should be for unlimited music — and it’s a lot lower than what the industry wants to charge.
