Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] McCartney's Song on Juggler Video


These endless rip-off's of McCartney's intellectual property have 
forced him into making commercials, shilling for Fidelity Investments. 
Let's pray his bank account will survive this horrible injustice.
Video of Bill Gates being deposed for an anti-trust lawsuit are also on 
Youtube. Don't those damned fair-use pirates realize that Bill's gotta 
family to feed?

Cheers,
