Bush & Rove copyfighters

Boing Boing notes that "Bush's iPod [is] filled with infringing goodness...President Bush has a treasured iPod full of songs that were decanted into it by a media strategist. This makes him: a downloader... and an infringer... exactly the kind of behavior the music industry characterizes as theft." Rove, not wanting to be one-upped said, of Fahrenheit 9/11: "I plead guilty to violating the copyright laws of the United States
by watching a bootleg DVD...I refuse to enrich [Moore]." (Boing Boing)
