your justification of record labels criminal behaviour is that pirates are worse criminals!?!
I've got two words for you, listen up: Contract Dispute
I've got two more words for you: Accounting Dispute.
Explain to me how accounting and contractual disputes between Business Partners is anything at all like Piracy?
When there are contracts and accounting to dispute with The Pirate Bay, let me know... You are waaaaaaaay out of water my friend.
As has been said Captial / EMI has PAID Kenny MILLIONS, TENS OF MILLIONS if not more and invested in his career through marketing, promotion and countless other ways... and all your focused on is a customary ACCOUNTING and CONTRACT dispute... No wonder the labels wouldn't have you... there's no helping someone with such a profound lack of understanding... and this happens IN EVERY BUSINESS it just doesn't make headlines because the parties are not famous...
So how much is Kenny making from Piracy again? And do you really think the next Kenny Rogers could be developed under the new model? Are you the next Kenny Rogers as the poster boy for the new model? Really? Seriously? C'mon dude... how about coming back to Planet Earth...
You are one of those guys who takes great pride in having 100% of nothing versus X% of millions... guess who's better off in the end...
