Amazon US Refunds Windows License Fee, Too

RandoX Do they cancel the WGA key? (284 comments)

Music Industry Thriving In an Era of File Sharing

RandoX Nobody sees this as a tainted source? (174 comments)

The guy works for a group whose business is *collecting royalties* for artists. Of course he's going to say that sales are up, and his clients deserve more money. If he were saying that sales were way down and had less than 7 degrees of separation from the RIAA he'd be flayed alive. When his position supports the /. mindhive it doesn't matter what his credentials are.

I should know better by now, but I'm disappointed by you, /.ers.

Iran Has Put a Satellite Into Orbit

RandoX Need verification. (923 comments)

Isn't this the same group that got caught releasing doctored photos when one of their missile launchers failed to fire? Maybe they cut the video feed right before the satellite exploded.
