Beyond phonograms

Where would you find someone with a heart so black they'd take on the task of trying to rebuild the image of gush-vandals BP?

Round the back of the RIAA, it turns out:

For an encore, Ms. Rosen, in her capacity as a managing partner of the London PR firm Brunswick Group, has been hired by BP to put a pretty face on the oil spill in the Gulf. Rosen is in the familiar company of log-rollers: BP has also hired 27 lobbyists who formerly worked in Congress or the executive branch.

Given the work Rosen did promoting knowledge and awareness of filesharing and easy ways to obtain unlicensed music, this can only be good news for manufacturers of wind turbines and solar panels.
