Paul McGuinness: Uncork'd

I love U2 more than anyone I know does, but the weight of his tens of millions of dollars might be making Paul McGuinness unravel. Of course, he wasn't finger-pointing when the record companies "temporarily" raised the prices of CDs to "pay off the new manufacturing equipment," nor does he seem to have a problem with Ticketmaster fees, etc.

He makes some quality points about the responsibility of ISPs in protecting intellectual property, but he sort of lets the labels off the hook for their refusal to come up with an appropriate response to the digital music age.

Also, "Vertigo" sucked balls.
