Alice In Chains compare filesharing to rape

Who knew there was something more ridiculous than comparing filesharing to stealing? Sean Kinney from Alice In Chains suggests it's more akin to prison rape:

"You know it's gonna happen 'cause it's part of (how the industry now works), but you just hope it doesn't happen too far in advance.

"It's nothing unique (but) we hadn't been through it, 'cause we hadn't made a record in 14 years, so I think that's the initial shock. It's like, 'What?'

"It's like going to prison - you're know you're gonna get raped, but you're not ready for it. You think you're all prepared for it, but you're not really prepared for how violent that rape is. It's like, 'Wow! He's really giving it to me.'"

Not, of course, that anyone is taking anything out of proportion or anything. Not at all.
