"480 Minutes" - 120120 Edition

What happens when you do 480 on 120120?  I guess we're going to find out!

So what happens when the RIAA and MPAA cry?  Congress proposes terrible legislation (SOPA and PIPA) to mollify them.  Fortunately there was a huge enough public outcry so that those bills are now at least on hold, but don't for a moment think they are not coming back.

And today the US government showed us that it doesn't even need SOPA and PIPA to do the bidding of the entertainment industry, it seized the domain of Megaupload and arrested it's CEO (who happens to be Alicia Keys' husband) and others (including Alicia Keys' husband).  It's doubtful that the domain seizure and arrests are even above board legal as those arrested are not US citizens, were arrested outside of the US, and the company itself is based outside of the US.  The rule of law is clearly now nothing more than a quaint notion.

Fortunately, we have people like Anonymous giving the finger to those attempting to trample on the Bill of Rights.

That said, while the internet still works, we've got music to play for you, so...hello and welcome 480 Minutes, the weekly marathon live hosted radio show highlighting the newest BAGeL Radio playlist additions, of which there are many today.
