Every once in a while you hear something so stupid that you can’t believe anyone could have said it. In this particular case Anthony Healy, director of the Australasian Performing Right Association, the administrator of music royalties said Without the content industries, the internet would be empty. We want to ensure that the people who make the content are rewarded.
Well Anthony, I’m producing lots of content. Send me some cash. I’m going to email you at the contact information on your website – email@example.com – right away. I suggest that everyone else do the same.
