Modern Art: $5 Million Worth Of Unauthorized Downloads On A Hard Drive On Display

from the can't-be-too-many-songs dept

TheNextWeb has an amusing story about a new art exhibit, called 5 Million Dollars, 1 Terabyte which is, of course, merely a hard drive with some unauthorized downloads on it. There's apparently a pdf file that lists out what's on the hard drive, but as with the author of the article, I was unable to get it to open. Of course, given how the industry seems to value "infringement" these days, I would imagine it doesn't need that many files to reach $5 million.

    Just tell them you were mislead there and it will all work out. Why your terrified of having a record of you having visited a website is confusing, there is no law stopping you from visiting TPB.
