This is one big network implimenting this. Richard James' views on
copyrighting mirror many people on this list so do differentiate
between the artist, the label, and beyond... can imagine that it even
went right past Warp without their consultation since the
manufacturers would see it as being in the interests of the artist
and label to stop pirating. Load of arse, eh.
