Paul McCartney's Confused About The Pirate Bay

,----[ Quote ]
| He says that as if there is anyone out there who claims that artists
| shouldn't get "rewarded" for doing something great. The problem is no one is
| saying that. We're just debating how they will (not should) get rewarded.
| And, of course, plenty of artists who embrace things like The Pirate Bay are
| getting rewarded for doing so. Claiming that they're not is simply false and
| suggests ignorance of the subject.

| pages longer than the document to which it was responding — termed the FSF an
| organization 'dedicated to eliminating restrictions on copying,
| redistribution, and modifying computer programs', and accused the FSF of
| having an 'open and virulent bias against copyrights' and 'blatant bias'
| against the record companies.
