Years ago the cartoonist Al Capp (Lil Abner) introduced a new character, a folk singer, who rode around in a limo to sing about poverty and hunger. He named her Joanie Phony. Joan Baez, in righteous indignation, sued him. I recall that he apologized on the Johnny Carson show, saying he was indeed sorry that Miss Baez believed she might be Joanie Phony. She looked like an idiot.
I'm not overly naive, usually, but Limewire says it's all anonymous. So how the hell does the AA know what me and a guy in Detroit are doing? Also, do they move against a criminal file sharer immediately or do they wait until he racks up enough downloads to increase their revenues substantially?
