ARE THE BPI USING THE COURTS AS AN ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN?

We'd hope not, but their General Counsel Geoff Taylor does seem to imply the latest thirty-three legal actions the UK music industry cartel is engaging on are being done to promote legal download services:

“We have warned people time and again that unauthorised filesharing is against the law. Anyone who is engaged in this activity faces having to pay thousands of pounds in compensation. It’s now easy to get music online legally. We will maintain our campaign until the message gets across.”

Although... if all they're interested in is "getting the message across" - actually, Geoff, I think people know. They just don't care that much.
