    The last word of the article is “sickening.” Sickening, perhaps, but quite commonplace.  Whenever you get artists and businessmen in the same room, you can guess who’ll be left holding the money. After all, the job of a businessman is to be left holding the money.

    Mr.  Rietveldt should at least acknowledge that his is a muzak ripoff of Prodidy/Tom Morello on their Spawn soundtrack contribution. Then again, both are bad enough that perhaps it’s protected as parody…

    //chuckle// in the USA the cadre of lawyers that works to find the money owed to artists is busy at work collecting the money. But they have a long list of people they can’t locate. Some years ago a reporter looking at their list of ‘lost’ artists found Ted Nugent’s name. Yep, same guy with TV hunting shows and one time with a reality show. Seemed they were holding onto a couple hundred grand of his money for a good decade.

    [1] Oh, it’s those anti-piracy ads. I always found them gloriously pointless.
    [2] Irony!
