The Media fights back against the FCC & Thompson addenda

It's pretty gratifying to see that some of the big media companies are finally going after the FCC to demand that they clarify their rules for 'indecency': Test of Decency Rules Likely. If they can get the courts to force the FCC to explain itself, maybe they won't have to live in a world of self-censorship, having to second guess themselves about what they might be fined for. Stay tuned.

Another note about Doc Thompson that I forgot about. There's one immortal quote from him that I would forward to every aspiring musician. I'd advise them to take it to heart and if it doesn't spook them too much, then they should persevere. "The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side."
