Look at this: Just a fan (of Wilco)
In which Wilco politely request that fans who have downloaded their forthcoming album ‘A Ghost Is Born’, which was leaked to the internet last month, make a donation to Doctors Without Borders.
No anger – except at corporate media (spot the emerging theme today) – and a respectful request that Wilco fans contribute to a charity organisation that the band feels is particularly worthy.
Isn’t that a more sensible response than suing your fans, one at a time?
