I don't know, big record labels are screwing over and ripping off
musicians all the time. But this case seems pretty open and shut to me. I
sent them email last week saying all they have to do is find a good enough
lawyer, sue sony, and they'll probably win.

what other action would you propose? Start sampling Sony music? We all
probably already are. They own about one-fifth of 95% of all the recorded
music everywhere.
