ASCAP wants your musical ringtone money

Slashdot

And now the music industry stoops to even more amazing lows...

From Slashdot:

"ASCAP (the same folks who went after Girl Scouts for singing around a campfire) appears to believe that every time your musical ringtone rings in public, you're violating copyright law by 'publicly performing' it without a license. At least that's the import of a brief (PDF, 2.5 MB) it filed in ASCAP's court battle with mobile phone giant AT&T."

Hey, ASCAP ... chew me.

You can't stop the music,

Nobody can stop the music.

Ahem ... anyways, I personally turn up my illeagally downloaded Ben 10 theme to LOUD as FUCK just to piss off these ass-rammers.

In fact, let's have a national day of FUCK you ASCAP!!

 

(And let's see them try and stop "friends" of mine downloading torrents too!! MUWAHAHAHAHAA!!)
