    re: Hey M&M ...

    As much as I'm not a fan of eminem, I think that he and his label had every right to file this suit. Chiat used his copyrighted lyrics without permission, or licensing. Last I checked, that's the whole reason these piracy laws began in the first place.... so "the man" couldn't rip off the artists....

    I'd be amicable...

    ...if I had a settlement (i.e. ca$h).

    Look, I love Apple just as much as everyone else here, but that doesnt always make them right. They were wrong on this one. End of story.

    Cash?

    I thought this wasn't about the money, but about the principle of the matter.

    Re:Cash?

    It is about the principle.

    And compound interest. And dividends. And a little walking around cash.

    Principles

    Show me a principled lawyer and I'll let you meet the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus in person. :)

    C'mon... who's REALLY getting the money (at least most of it)? Eminem/The Record Label? Think again!

    Lawsuits may be started for "the principle of the matter," but there's no "profit" for the lawyer in the defendants just getting a warning not to do it again...

    Now we know...

    why didn't get any price breaks on the "new" Powermacs. Buy a G5, bucks to eminem.

    And don't think HE is going to get any money... remember, it's the label that generally holds the copyright, not the artist.
