Just when I thought I had heard every loopy copyleft conspiracy theory comes a new one that has really got to be read to be believed. Or disbelieved. And exposed to public mockery.
Jack Sanders, Esq., of Nutley, New Jersey ("Certified as a Civil Trial Attorney by the Supreme Court of New Jersey"!) has an article on "Issue Oriented" that argues (and I use than term loosely) that the RIAA is somehow linked to "torture." Somehow.
Here's Sanders' "theory": the record labels' litigation against individual p2p infringers can be explained by the fact that RIAA CEO Mitch Bainwol used to work for former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN), who was a co-sponsor of the Military Commissions Act of 2006, which had something to do with torture, oh, and there was also a controversy about Frist's dissection of cats while in medical school, and "Frist was anti-choice, anti-embryonic stem cell research, anti-gay marriage, pro-teaching creationism in schools," so therefore the labels' lawsuits are really, really bad. Or something. Read it yourself. And weep.
