OiNK is bacon

OiNK was a private bittorrent site for music. If I had been an OiNK user who had stolen many tons of music through it, I would be mourning it right now. On the other hand, it's useful to question the "yeah man FUCK the record companies" view on digital rights. Musicians gotta eat, yo.

(There's got to be a better discussion of that issue somewhere...)

If I donate a few thousand dollars to a musicians' pension fund, can I be absolved of guilt?
