Glass Half Full
In January of 2008, I was sued by the RIAA for sharing music. I paid my settlement (they even had a website where you could enter the code they mail you and then pay by credit card). Then, a few weeks later, an issue of the music magazine Spin mysteriously showed up to my house. I have been getting it monthly ever since, to this day. I have never once paid for this subscription or been asked to renew it, and nobody has ever given it to me as a gift as far as I know. So did I really get a free (or incredibly expensive, depending on how you look at it) magazine subscription from the RIAA? YOU DECIDE.
