Just a heads up:
The evil, evil folks at Walmart have a sale on the series right now. Season 1 is $17.96, and seasons 2-5 are $14.96. 
Damn, they're only available online! Now THAT is bullshit.

I think they'd be 'for' it for your own personal use (like VHS tapes back in the day..)

And 'Against' it for selling burned copies, or uploading to t o r r e n t sites.. :-\

Penn's talked about it before on his radio show and he is very much against it unless the artist gives express permission. He also thinks that people shouldn't pay for anything other than what they feel they should give the artist, which sounds contradictory on the face of it, but makes sense.

I'd better watch out lest people think I worship Penn Jillette or something. I mean, I do, but I don't want people to think that.

Is that like worshipping Bic Pens and Gilette Razors?

It kind of sounds to me like he is in favour of Radiohead's method. Take the publisher out of the equation, post it on your site, with a "pay what you feel it's worth" method.

Sure, some people downloaded it from their site and didn't pay a cent (which Radiohead allowed as an option), but lots of other people paid $5, $10, or even $20 for it (suckers). In the end, they ended up with millions in revenue, which was all theirs (instead of having to share most of it with the producer). If nothing else, it should be proof of concept for the system.

I don't even LIKE Radiohead, but I still downloaded the album and paid them 5 bux for it, because I support the IDEA.

OK so which episode do they talk about chiropractic "medicine"? I know they've done it but I can't think of the specific episode title.
