Alan C over at the London News Review has swung into action over the BPI attempts to get four grand out of Sylvia Price on pain of prison, and has established a pledge bank appeal to keep Sylvia out of chokey. If 400 people sign up to chip in a tenner, the BPI demand can be paid off, Sylvia doesn't go to prison, you'll have the warm glow of knowing that you've helped the BPI a further step along in its public transformation from music industry champion to seedy, cash grunning extortion board.

On the other hand, the BPI could just drop the threats to pursue Sylvia for the money. If there's still anyone there who cares what their public image is like.

Go on; pledge a tenner. You know Coldplay need it.
