Ryan Adams Is On The Prowl

Geoff Trainor

If you are like me, you might consider yourself lucky to not be a fan of Ryan Adams. It isn't that his music is bad, but I can't get over the connection his name has with that other Canadian guy. Believe me, you are better off not being one of his fans, if he treats them all in this manner.

Robert Thomas (Wisconsin) and Jared Bowser (Florida) have been indicted by a federal grand jury for leaking tracks for Adams', Jacksonville City Nights, last August. Each are facing up to 11 years in prison for violating the FECA (Family Entertainment & Copyright Act). The section violated states that media not be made available on a computer network accessible to members of the public, if such person knew or should have known that the work was intended for commercial distribution.

Some say that the punishment is a bit severe given that neither were in it for monitary gain, but RIAA chairman Mitch Bainwol (obviously) disagrees,

"Prerelease piracy is a particularly damaging and onerous form of theft. It robs artists of the chance to sell their music before it even hits the streets or becomes legally available online. The message here is clear:

Significant crimes bring significant consequences."

Weird, I thought the line was "With Great Power, Comes Great Resposibility."

wrote about this too and I had pretty much the same take. I'm glad the FBI has time for this crap. I know artists need to get paid, but this was almost like free pro-mo. How can two free songs hurt the sales of an album with what 13 songs or so on it.

People don't understand music any more.

sometimes you can go to earn the mabinogi gold for your own life and you can also get a lot of happiness in the game if you play the game well. you can brush the cheap mabinogi to upgrade and then you are very strong. You think that you want to play the game well and then you can get the mabinogi money for your own. you can go to buy mabinogi gold alone and you can give some for your friends; it can make you very happy I think. As long as you play the game you can get the mabinogi online gold as the rewards in this game.
