1) Congratulations. I highlighted it on my blog, and we sent a PR as well.

2) The AFP article was very interesting, particularly the quote from the
Finnish IFPI director:


> "We are absolutely against the idea that any political party can give
their support
> to the idea of free use of protected content," said Arto Alaspää, the
director of
> IFPI Finland (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry).

IFPI is absolutely opposed to the fact that a political party is allowed
to support a particular idea? Does he even understand himself what he
just said? I'm not sure if a "yes" or "no" answer is scarier.
