+ - Confession of a college downloader's father

sm62704 (mcgrew) writes: "St. Louis Post Dispatch columnist Bill McClellan tells the tale of the music industry suing his college aged son, and how the old geezer wound up paying the settlement.

The attorney looked into the matter and explained that the music industry has been filing these lawsuits in an effort to frighten people away from downloading music. A woman in Minnesota went to court and lost $120,000. That frightened me. I decided to accept the settlement offer. We had to pay the music industry $4,000.

I do not even know what downloading is.
Here we have a man who doesn't even know what downloading is, paying a fine for downloading."
