Senator Paschal Mooney parrots the EMI "Aslan filesharing" story
'There is a perception that the big five record companies, all international companies, have been ripping off the consumer for many years. I do not want to be seen as an apologist for the music industry [jm: oh really], but at the lower level I can give a specific example to highlight the impact of illegal downloading on Aslan, an Irish band. [... blah blah...] Why must we wait for a High Court judgment to be made before we introduce relevant legislation? This is not the first time it has happened in the copyright sector.' -- wait, the what? It's a SECTOR now?!! wtf (via Charles Julienne)
