Five years ago today

A few years too late, and in a tiny gesture, Universal launched a small portion of its catalogue online, while the RIAA launched a website which compared having your music shared on a peer to peer network with being raped, while in China many of the RIAA companies accepted that piracy had won and started looking for other revenue streams;
China Crisis got a gig at the JobCentre;
Ministry of Sound denied they were in crisis;
and the rapper whose song had been adopted by the Countryside Alliance as an anthem announced that, actually, he didn't like foxhunting at all.
