Computer virus helps singers to fight piracy

Date: August 13, 2007

W32.Deletemusic: This is the greatest idea I’ve read about in a long time. As named, It’s a computer virus that destroys music files on infected computers. I’ve long held the idea that dumb people should not be allowed to listen to music, and this virus is an indirect execution of that idea. If people aren’t smart enough to protect themselves from a computer virus, or to keep some sort of backup for their music library (like some sort of compact disc perhaps), then they’ve earned a one-way trip to silence-town. But alas, as certain as I was that this would finally destroy Aly &AJ, the virus proved to be a dud and few computers actually became infected.
