Let's just ban music

The music industry has apparently decided it's not enough to sue people for downloading a few songs off the Internet.  It now apparently wants to collect royalties from Apple for those 30-second song clips on iTunes.  

Nicholas Deleon at CrunchGear has come up with the solution to all of this craziness - let's just ban music altogether:

I’m sorry, but we have to ban music. That’s just the way it is.

It has come to my attention that the music industry now wants royalties for those 30-second clips of music you hear in iTunes. That, I think you’ll agree, is bullshit. Seeing as how we’re a solution-oriented blog here at CrunchGear, I want to offer a completely fool-proof way to save the music industry and put an end to the years and years of nonsense we’ve seen since Napster was first released: let’s ban music. That’s right, let’s pass a law that says “the creation or performance of music, in any form, is hereby banned. Any violation of this law will be punishable by death.” Problem solved, let’s all play Hungry Hungry Hippos.

Tongue-in-cheek, no doubt, but the world just seems to go a little bit crazier every day.
