In this episode:
We go over the music played in some of the previous music episodes.
And discuss topics like using public recordings as re-mixable music, if downloading music is the same as stealing a car and more.

Check Doug's show notes below for more information on what we talked about.

Transformers 4! Link

Goths! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goth

Per usual, Wiretapping laws in the US are all over the place because of Internet being bolted on to old laws and the various state laws: https://ssd.eff.org/wire/govt/wiretapping-protections
Based on the fact the law went into affect in 1968, I don’t know about the legitimacy of some of the recordings, but even if the recorder violated the law, I don’t think you would be held liable. Of course, I am not a lawyer, and I definitely have not studied surveillance law or criminal law.

One of our top key words this week “full house house”. (also the #2 search all time!)
Also airhashtags!

Ukraine is our 4th biggest country all time. Weird, but awesome! Hello Ukraine!

The most visited post where we did not have a guest and that is not a music show:
Apparently Tom and I should do more headphone reviews...
Or, perhaps it’s because we talked about Justin Bieber that show?

Also, apparently there are more “Napster Bad” videos.
