I just don't get it. I understand wherefrom the RIAA, ASCAP, BMI, Harry
Fox, ad nauseum, comes but once again, it makes no sense a'tall. used to be my Number One bookmark. So it's okay to buy and
listen to a musical performance but it's not okay to READ the lyrics?
The first thing I look for when I crack an lp cover or cd case are
lyrics in the liner notes. Those that give get extra points.

My goal is to encode lyrics in every p2p file I generate.

I'm mad and I'm not gonna take it anymore!
