Legal And we have news of yet another massive copyright infringement lawsuit in the music industry. This one takes place in Canada, and the infringed party is placing a truly massive claim on the infringing party: 50 million USD, with the possibility of it exceeding 60 billion USD. Bad news? Well, no, not really - you really need to consider the infringing party in this one. This is irony not even the ancient Greeks could imagine.

It's been amusing to watch the CRIA trying to "debunk" that interpretation. It's boiled down to "No, even though you pay a levy on blank media, that doesn't give you the right to make copies. Why? Well, uh... SHUT UP!"
