William S. Burroughs
said it best...
'Artists to my mind are the real architects of change, and not the political legislators who implement change after the fact. '
'How I hate those who are dedicated to producing conformity. '
and the truest one...
'Hustlers of the world, there is one mark you cannot beat: the mark inside. '
As for the article, who's buying what? Who is the money (if there is any), going to? Since the Swedish courts have pretty much deemed TPB illegal (prison sentence and large fines to the four -owners? founders?), wouldn't any money be seized by the state (that entity that always knows best), and given to the entertainment industry who have lost so much </heavy irony>?
One more Burroughs: Junk is the ideal product... the ultimate merchandise. No sales talk necessary. The client will crawl through a sewer and beg to buy. (junk: heroin, or the homogenised crap they package and resell over and over and over again).
