‘I always feel like…somebody’s watching me-eeee…’

After the Recording Industry Association of America made a teaspoon’s worth of progress
in it’s fight against Grokster and it’s merry band of downloaders, Sony Music today discovered there’s a massive and international backlash against it’s new (previously surreptitious) anti-piracy software, per the USA Today.

For this and other reasons, Sony Music chief Andy Lack inside2-andy-lack.jpg is under the gun, and Forbes.com has an interesting list of reason why many would like to see him fall under a trolley and die in a horrible twisted mass of flesh and steel.

This all comes on the heels of disheartening news that XM’s and Sirius’ clever plan to propagate “TiVo-for-radio” might well be a thing of the past even before it became the wave of the future.

Of course, I don’t see why everyone’s so annoyed with poor Mon. Lack… After all, thanks to the Patriot Act, the ‘Guhment now keeps watch over which books you take out of the library; Sony was only (barely) keeping up with the Joneses.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go check out my reserved copy of the “Anarchist’s Cookbook” and burn another hundered thousand copies of Bun-B‘s “Trill.”
