So here’s a couple of links that have been bothering me today.
First up, pro-SOPA (and award-winning, apparently) songwriter Helienne Lindvall’s mindblowing article in The Guardian explaining why it’s worth shutting down the internet in order to preserve the business model of major music labels: http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/musicblog/2012/jan/19/behind-music-anti-piracy-legislation
But that article has a soundtrack. It’s this song, co-written by one H. Lindvall: Daniel Lindström - Got to be you.
Not sure if that’s the one that won an award. I’ll say this though - if you can make it both to the end of the song and the end of the article, you deserve an award yourself. (Comments on the article are worth reading also, except mine.)
