Justice League of America? Yeah, we need Superman, Batman, Wonderwoman, etc.

That legal warning about unauthorized lending is a default disclaimer used by certain major labels. I remember laughing the first time I read it on Soundgarden's Superunknown album... back in 1994, then I lent it to a classmate. This is not something any specific band is warning about, this is not a new warning from a label or the RIAA, though it might seem new for people who've never looked at fine print before.

I would also like to warn anyone away from borrowing a Mumford and Sons CD.

Can I borrow your copy to see if it's really worth the crap-storm they are going to get for that legal warning?

I think its time for the RIAA to go after those Hollywood companies that illegally download. They should have lots of cash to pay those fines now.

Seems like a good defense for anyone in a download suit, if the movie industry is pirating movies, how can they sue anyone for doing the same?

Because it's not official company policy and those people will get shitcanned in a second if caught.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.
