to me, the news relevant to this list is the actual legal
action. the issue of the media's complicity in hyping the
story in a certain way is somewhat interesting, but
secondary, and also old news, imho. obviously mainstream
news outlets will hype and spin things in whatever
fashion will profit them most. they and the RIAA are on the
same team, but we knew that already...
