"Tough Love" from Cary Sherman

Here's a rather defensive and fulsome op-ed in CNET from Cary Sherman on "tough love" and why he believes that suing customers and music fans is a good thing.

He's the President of the RIAA.

He has brought "tough love" to about 26,000 ordinary Americans, ranging from a 12 year girl living in subsidized housing to a dead grandmother. And his tough love has just resulted in a jury verdict against Jammie Thomas, a 30 year old single mother of two, of $222,000 plus her legal fees and likely those of the RIAA.

Be sure to read the comments, including this one.

Is Canada ready for this "tough love"? I don't think so.
