  1. Spotify is the new Napster from back in the day. Except that it’s thru streaming. But, we don’t have the option to buy the track which should of been provided so shit like this doesn’t happen.

  2. Here's the thing, was Spotify writing a check. If they were then I think they'll beat it with ease. But if they weren't then the case could go to the label. Also Spotify is wrong on the law because there is a clause that goes for Radio and Television airplay, one would assume that now includes streaming.

  3. Wait! Morello and La Rocha are Marxists. Why would they be part of some lawsuit? I thought they gave away all of this music for free. Are you suggesting they are actually greedy "Capitalists"? Oh my, profiting from rage indeed!
