Delicious Irony

by Adam Selene

From a Wired Blog entry:

On the last day of the recent Reuters Media and Marketing Summit in New York, Warner Music Group CEO [ed: Edgar Bronfman] admitted that he was “fairly certain” that one or more of his seven children had downloaded music without the permission of the copyright owner, which Reuters referred to as stealing.

Now, you may wonder what happened to Mr. Bronfman’s children?

I explained to them what I believe is right, that the principle is that stealing music is stealing music. [...] A bright line around moral responsibility is very important. I can assure you they no longer do that.

Well, that makes it all better then. Good thing they didn’t get sued by a media company. Like, let’s say, Warner Music Group?
