Thank goodness we have clear-thinking and straight-talking people like Universal CEO Doug Morris among us! Otherwise I wouldn’t have known just how big a scumbag I am. Here’s a priceless quote from Billboard:
“These devices are just repositories for stolen music, and they all know it,” UMG chairman/CEO Doug Morris says. “So it’s time to get paid for it.”
What a tool. I’ve spent hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars on music – either through direct purchases from the iTunes Music Store, by ripping MY CDs and even by transferring songs off of MY vinyl. I also seek out free music from legitimate online sources like Amazon and further.net.
Perhaps, to fight that frustrated feeling caused by all of these illegal repositories, Mr. Morris should consider a suppository. It might loosen him up a bit.
