The Web site of Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI) has been down since last night after being targeted by a distributed denial-of-service attack
launched by the Anonymous hacker group as part of what it calls its "war on copyright."
It seems a paradigm to approve of some of the actions of this group while reviling others. I personally have mixed feelings on this one. At least it
was only a DDoS attack and no harm was actually done to the data at BMI. I am mixed though, because I know what scumbuckets these organizations can
be and how they take the majority of the earnings on material originally created by an artist. Organizations like BMI and MPAA rob artists blind and
get rich off of their creations. However, I dont think it is the concern of Anon to deal with these companies, rather the artists themselves.
I think I disagree with this attack, mostly based on the old adage of "butting in where its not your concern".
