Legal Ah, a lovely bit of news that to help us start the weekend off with positive thoughts! A UK jury has unanimously acquitted Alan Ellis, founder and administrator of the invitation-only OiNK music bittorrent tracker. This means that his 2 year-long trial has finally come to an end - there's no more room for appeal.

As an ex-user of oink I was very happy to hear the news.

Although, I've a few thousand CD's I rarely buy any now and never, never will, buy digital downloads and get most of my music torrenting. Don't give a monkeys about the legality and though I'm 54 I hope to see the the day when they all go bankrupt. Hope, but doubt it will happen ;) .

I would buy CD's if around £5 but seeing a classical or jazz CD for £16 or so just makes me want to vomit.

Just saying.
