Submission + - Hulu Plus Now Available To All: But Be Warned (

itwbennett writes: Peter Smith outlines some of the things you need to know before plunking down your $10 subscription fee for Hulu Plus, which yesterday came out of its invitation-only "Preview" phase and is now open to everyone. First off, don't assume that paying $10 gets you out of viewing ads like it does on Netflix — and there's no way to skip them. Second, yes, there's tons of content available on Hulu Plus but it's not necessarily the same content as 'So if you've been watching a show on and can't wait to watch it on the big screen via your PS3, stop a moment and check the Hulu Plus listings.' advises Smith. And then there's the issue of performance, which at least in the preview version has been less than perfect.

They went above and beyond following both the letter and the spirit of the law. They had the label's permission to use it and songs has been taken down before the complaint was even filed. The labels attacked part of their own distribution method for something that would have been invalid even if they had not had permission!

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
