"The customer is always right, unless they're unhappy with us."

You know, I'd give my right arm -- well, perhaps somebody else's right 
arm -- for the opportunity to some day to be interviewing an ex-RIAA 
executive, just so I can say:

"I see from your CV that you took millions of customers and made them so 
mad at you that not only did they break the law to give you the finger, 
but they promised to never, ever pay a cent for your products again. So 
tell me, how did that business strategy work out for you?"
