Usenet lost

Isn't this cheerful?

Quote from cnet:

Usenet.com lawyers lost their copyright infringement case to the music industry on Tuesday and are now preparing for a federal court to assess damages. The judgment could be hundreds of millions of dollars.

You gotta read the full article, it's pretty depressing. The comments at the end don't help much either.

Always interests me, the way countries will not interfere when great number of folks are being killed but the moment it is copyright infringement, then they have to tell you how to run the country.
