The Allman Brothers Sue Universal for $13m. Glad to see them taking a stand

#1
I for one am glad to see someone taking a stand. These billion dollar corporations, such as Apple, have to abide by no laws.

How many times have consumers, little guys like you an me, been told taking free music is wrong, calling it theft? There have been quite-a-few. Making it appear that it is only 'theft' if it's the little guy taking the music... yet, it's okay for corporations to bank off these bands' hard work by supplying the honest-to-god consumers, who do the right thing and don't steal music, they buy it "legally".

Recently, we are seeing musicians taking a stand, like Kid Rock, who are fighting for their rights.. and I'll be honest, I am glad to see the corporates getting the sting. I just hope they don't try to corrupt the law even more by buying their off to judges.



Kid Rock even said once that he'd rather kids download his music 'illegally' than itunes banking millions off his hard work, from selling it to people 'illegally'.

What are your thoughts on the matter?

+1000 to the Allman Brothers.
Oh, and this:


I doubt that Kyle Gass styled his character off Warren Haynes, since he (Haynes) usually has facial hair, but it's an interesting similarity.

EDIT: Warren Haynes, thank you ShredGod George

You keep seeing songs like KoC, SMBH, and Hysteria showing up on games, but I want Micro Cuts on either Rock Band or Sing Star. I want to see numerous masses of kids staring at the tv wondering what the hell they're supposed to do.

itunes is such a rip off. They only buy the songs for like 10 cents(or something like that), but sell it for 99 cents! That's wrong. And then these companies try and stop downloading, forcing people to buy from them with their inflated prices. I get large amounts of music from the local library and online, copies from friends, or transfered from old tapes and LPs. It's not that I want to steal from the artists, It's that I refuse to give to the companies who reap most all of the benifits.

I doubt that Kyle Gass styled his character off of part of the Allman Brothers, since he (the AB guy) didn't always weigh that much, but it's an interesting similarity.

I think the band should have went for more. It's disturbing how these billion dollar corporate companies can pay their way to be above the law.

It's just wrong.
