What I am doing as a consumer is ceasing to use the product as it is the only true power I have over these huge corporations. Music is not a requirement to survive in life, at least not purchased music. I find other ways to meet my need for music and figure if enough people get sick and tired of being crapped on as a consumer they will also cease consuming. Sure it is very inconvenient and in the short run I seem to be the one to suffer but that is just a perspective and those can be changed more easily than causing corporations to care about the consumer. To be perfectly honest I do not hold out much hope as it SEEMS the general public have no energy to fight for their needs and rights. They act more like sheep than anything and corporations know this and take full advantage.
To me this is just another example of 'gay bashing' and greed (in the case of Liberty). The judge in this case is acting as though there is some homophobia inside them as cannot see any damage created by outing. Who, in this day and age, does not realize the harm in that? The answer is only those with their head in the sand or operating from fear.
