More Perspective On Skinny Puppy Invoicing The US Government

I thought I was being original taking a semi-serious look at the copyright issues involved in the US government using heavy metal and industrial music to torture prisoners. As I should have expected, Howard Knopf beat me to the punch by 6 years. And did a better job of it too. If this is something you're interested in, check out his interview with Voice of Russia on the topic. Knopf takes the opportunity to criticize the US for it's hypocritical stance on copyright enforcement, demanding that other countries change their copyright laws while continuing to violate or refusing to ratify international treaties they find inconvenient.
