    Anyone here recall the old Dire Straits line of "Money for Nothing, and Chicks for Free"?

    Who is gunna line up to pay, if the end user isn't?

    And we are talkin' 'bout music rights here; I don't know how that all works, but why can I play a song on Pandora, and the copyright guy either gets paid (from Where, or from Whom), or not?

    General potential investor questions; can a get some clarification from a board member on this?

    If not, you know that they aren't bright enuf to read their own boards, and don't give a toss about the "investor".
