Dear RIAA: My name is Brittany KrugerComplete article
p2pnet news view RIAA | P2P:- “My name is Brittany Kruger. I’m not a criminal. I’m not a tough person. I cry almost every night these days, and I’m scared to death of what is going to happen to me in the future. Most of all I’m not a pirate, I don’t have a peg leg or a hook for a hand, and I don’t raid ships on the high seas looking for booty.”
They’re the first three lines Britanny (right) wrote in a story explaining exactly what it’s like to be an American student hounded by Vivendi Universal (France), Sony BMG (Japan and Germany), EMI (Britain), and Warner Music (US, but run by a Canadian).
