Return of the Iraqi Information Minister

We’ve found the former Iraqi Information Minister, again making quixotic remarks (“My feelings are as usual, we will slaughter them all”), this time for the recording industry (in reponse to the Grokster ruling):

    “One thing is clear, it’s not over,” said Allen Dixon, general counsel at the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), a global trade body that represents 1500 music labels.

    ….”The IFPI and its member companies and national groups will continue to actively pursue infringers of all types as we see them… We are not going to take the whole business of mass copying and distribution of music lying down,” said Dixon. [Reuters]here for coverage of the Grokster ruling.
