You can get your ass sued just for "participating and encouraging the
international unauthorized copying and distribution of musical sound
recordings by speaking positively of DEFENDANT NAPSTER, INC."

Speaking positively?

Famed San Francisco music producer Matthew Katz (he worked with
Jefferson Airplane) is suing Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit and Roger McGuinn
of The Byrds for "speaking positively" on a Napster promotional tour.

A bad OCR of the complaint is at:

All together now...California Uber Alles!
