Why I Don't Envy Matt
Stupid-ass copyright litigation. These suits are just getting absurd; I'm all for protecting artist writes, but the current state of US copyright law is a total mess that only protects the giant media conglomerates (see the massive RIAA lawsuit.) Now, Matallica has launched a new law suit over a Canadian band's use of the E and F chord. Yup, Metallica is suing over a Chord progression. Read all about it, and then checkout the band's statement.

"Ulrich states that he's not trying to prevent Unfaith from using the two chords, only that he feels Metallica should be credited for them whenever used, and is calling for 50% of all revenue generated from any song using them."
