Derrick Story of the O’Reilly Network wants to hear from you:
- It has just been reported that six Butterfinger candy bars were illegally downloaded into a college student’s backpack from Sam’s newsstand in New York City. The candy was then distributed to friends who are know to have a craving for this chocolate-covered peanut butter confection.
Candy Makers Association spokesperson Rillary Hosen quickly responded by saying, “I thought Sam’s had adequately secured his newsstand. Apparently, offering single purchases of our candy for 99 cents just isn’t good enough for some people. We’re looking into once again, only offering case purchases, and from more responsible retail outlets.”
…. think the news flash above, and the article I read this morning, Hackers bite Apple in its iTunes by David Zeiler, is typical of the press I’ve seen about music sharing, the Apple Music Store, downloading music, etc.
I see quotes from industry analysts, RIAA, and the EFF. But once again, I don’t know what the actual artists are thinking. They are the ones who create the content that everyone else is arguing about. I’m tired of listening to the RIAA. I want to hear from the musicians.
