"Two decades have passed since songwriter Angela Kaset’s 'Something in Red' became a country music hit. Since then, Internet piracy has become a critical issue for the American music industry, and Kaset has become convinced the problem explains her rapidly declining income. Kaset is among the Nashville artists and songwriters who are pinning their economic hopes on a bill authored by Sen. Patrick Leahy [D-VT] and co-sponsored by Tennessee Republican Sens. Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker, that would impose stricter copyright protections on the Internet." [editor's note: As a long-time fan/casual acquaintance of Ms. Kaset (and closer friends with others in this fight, as well as a songsmith in my own write), I'm watching closely - SAT] (12/14/11)
