G8 Agenda: Global Warming, Terrorism, Poverty… And Cheap Music?
from the priorities,-people,-priorities! dept
Apparently, the British recording industry lobbying group, BPI, isn’t satisfied with the recent ruling saying they can sue Russian music site Allofmp3.com in the UK. Now, they’ve written a letter urging the UK foreign secretary to make sure that a discussion of AllofMP3.com will take place at the latest G8 summit. Yes, we’re absolutely sure that among the talk of terrorism, poverty and energy crises world leaders are going to be concerned with a website that sells music cheaper than the industry likes. The company still claims they’re perfectly legal in Russia — and Russian authorities seem to agree so far. So, it’s difficult to see why the global leaders of the some of the biggest countries in the world should really care about the matter.
