Here everybody, here's a technology that is the equivalent to bolt cutters"<br><br>I hope everyone looks at Rob Glaser as the sleaze that he is and starts to avoid real upon their next media content creation or delivery. I also hope the music industry sees this as a threat and requests that Real stop these predatory practices.<br><br><br> &
