	I've been using xmission.com for about 10 years,
	and they are excellent. The owner used to be
	active in the Internet music community and
	has hosted music related mailing lists and websites
	for a long time (notably the venerable nm-list
	and the zorn-list). They are a medium sized ISP
	with about 30 employees and have a long tradition
	of standing up against censorship.

	I dropped them an email asking about your fair use 
	issue and they said "Yeah, send him our way.  We
	stand up to people without court orders all the time."

	I guess you gotta be tough if you're running an
	ISP in Mormon controlled Utah. :)

"I'm the commander - see, I don't need to explain - I don't need to explain why
I say things. That's the interesting thing about being the President. Maybe
somebody needs to explain to me why they say something, but I don't feel like
I owe anybody an explanation." - George W. Bush, Washington Post, 11-19-02
