That’s just silly.

    How proud they must be to have made that arrest. Such a dangerous criminal. Next they’ll be singing “Happy Birthday” in public places. disgraceful!

    I guess I’d better stop playing Beatles songs on my guitar.

    Not so strange, Adam. It depends on what kind of “warranty” was given. If you get a 3 year warranty on anything you expect it to work – or you will take some kind of action. As usual the media does not give a lot of detail and attempts to outrage. In any case, it is not a law they are writing about, but an interpretation of law. Aren’t you going to Yale – you should know the difference.
