"...The Christian Science Monitor wrote today that Gillis' new album was "provoking copyright owners for the fifth time." The fifth time? Shouldn't the third or fourth provocation have been enough to set off a supposedly litigious industry?...
So why hasn't Gillis been hauled in front of a judge by the music industry? Probably because he's the most unappealing defendant imaginable. Gillis would be a ready-made hero for copyright reformers; if he were sued, he'd have some of the best copyright lawyers in the country knocking on his door asking to take his case for free...."
