digital copywrongs

Poor Lily Rose Allen - after trying to stand up for -what would you call them - starter artistes? baby bands? from having their livelihoods taken away from them before they start their careers through all that evil wicked bad internet file sharing malarkey... she's found herself unable to cope with the endless abuse and has now shut up shop... she might never record again (like that would be a bad thing?)

Meanwhile things in the totally legit world of music downloading aren't so rosy either with Eminem taking Universal to court over issues over royalties and iTunes/Apple.

Which just proves the whole issue is a lot more complicated then Lilley and Peter Mandelson would have us believe.

Certainly what is wrong here is the proposal to force all ISPs to essentially wiretap all of their customers in case one of them shares something.
