< soapbox title="Generalising whinge">

Rundown of the Grey Album hoo-ha at Downhill Battle. Not the first farce perpetrated by Big Record Co. (see the joke that is 99p-per-track downloading), and surely not the last, but this one's building some critical momentum at least. Milady knows more about the legal ins and outs of this than I can possibly imagine, but whatever the status of the law (which in cases such as this is desperately reacting to shore up long-outdated legislation in defense against new technology, rather than developing new legal parameters in line with what is actually happening) something needs fixing, because it seems that the right people (the artists and the listeners) are the ones who get the rough end.
