It is copyrighted by the NAWCC and they are zealots about it. The link to the blog I provided is showing the lessons one at a time or it is availble at ebay for $22.00 in cd format.

Raid was by NZ police at the behest of the FBI.

The raid was held to be illegal in NZ court thus gumming up the U.S.'s request for extradition. I believe it's headed for the NZ supreme court.

Meantime, if you can't get what you want through legislation, let's just go all Executive on it.

Sharing a song on YouTube could soon become a felony: the United State Department of Commerce is asking Congress to increase the penalties for streaming copyrighted work, reviving a provision from the failed Stop Online Piracy Act.
