Remember Davenport Lyons? Their clients who discovered that it was actually ruinous to get a reputation with paying customers as RIAA-like thugs certainly do. They’ve been all but silent of late.

However, a new UK law firm, ACS Law, appears to be doing the same things: sending out legal threat letters demanding between £400 and £700, but disappearing with no further response when questioned more closely. TorrentFreak details the unearthly similarities and gives a nice list of questions you can send if they ever contact you.

WFMU launches the Free Music Archive.

WFMU is a fine New York-based “WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT”-format public radio station. They have a blog with a fine selection of the weird goddamn shit they broadcast. And now, they have, in collaboration with a few likeminded radio stations and organisations, launched the Free Music Archive: “It’s not just free music, it’s good music.” Go forth and get downloading like a bastard.
