Trent Reznor, the Nine Inch Nails frontman who encouraged his fans to steal music, had a favorite site to steal from. It was Oink, the music-sharing site that got shut down last week, as he told New York:
I'll admit I had an account there and frequented it quite often. At the end of the day, what made OiNK a great place was that it was like the world's greatest record store. Pretty much anything you could ever imagine, it was there, and it was there in the format you wanted... it existed because it filled a void of what people want.
Reznor also feels "hustled" when he visits iTunes. Maybe he'll donate to help The Pirate Bay build their BitTorrent replacement. (Photo by AP/Louis Lanzano)
