Re: What a load of crap posted here
It's pretty simple. Risk to the company with the highest corporate valuation? Zero (actually a little electricity and some bandwidth they were already going to pay for anyway but is undoubtedly offset by the huge full quarters operating loss tax deduction). Risk to starving artist? Starvation since they won't have any income to offset by the loss.
I'm sure Apple is crying all the way to the bank on this one. Time to start a bonfire and toss in the few remaining iPods.
