P2P Net, an infringement-friendly news site, joins the growing chorus of copyleft activists hoping to forestall President-Elect Obama from appointing a pro-industry IP Czar. P2P Net suggests Nashville music attorney Fred Wilhelms, who specializes in representing artists seeking allegedly unpaid royalties from record labels and publishers. (Why can't I find him on Tennessee's official attorney directory? Hope he's OK!)
The comments below the P2P Net article include some entertaining suggestions, including singer/songwriter Janis Ian, Bono, Kris Kristofferson (a Rhodes scholar!) and "NINE INCH NAILS BAND LEADER." Apparently unacceptable are "Lars [I killed Napster] Ulrich and Orrin [blow up their computers] Hatch."
