From the vault of last weeks music news:

A Sydney court has sentenced a music pirate to nine months in jail — the longest custodial sentence for piracy offences ever handed down in Australia. 45 year old Qing Wang appeared before the Burwood Local Court over more than 30 offences relating to copyright theft. Wang entered a plea of guilty to charges stemming from a NSW Police raid on a South Western Sydney market in May 2008 where Wang was caught selling pirate discs. (care of Christie Elizer’s Music News).

Now I certainly don’t feel too much sympathy over Wang’s predicament. What drew me to bring this little piece of news to njv is that I’m pretty flummoxed that people actually still sell (and buy) pirate CD’s. I’m feeling a little uninspired to give an argument over that statement tonight though, and so, rather than give a full complex rundown on what I think on the issue, I’ll just let this picture tell the story:


May we say God save the vinyl format.
