An update to a Lampoon classic for Universal Music Group Distribution President Jim Urie, who lamented in his latest pity-the-fat-leeches letter:
"The online theft of music is killing artists, singers, songwriters, musicians, retailers, production engineers and others. It is destroying jobs, dreams and careers. The music community is at risk, as is the unique culture of American music itself."
Funny... because according to all the graphs, reports, calculations and financial sheets, music and musicians are making more money now than before the net became popular. Who is not making money is, of course, the middlemen; those guys who produce nothing and suck everything... like drama queen Jimbo.
