RT @SmallCatgirl@twitter.com: i wanted to see what music was on voyager and like.... this is kind of sad.

@socketwench it was entrapment for the aliens. We will capture and detain them for DMCA violation, and then exoeriment on them.

@socketwench did nasa pay the record labels to put music on the golden record? because sending music to aliens should be fair use

@socketwench Copyright infringement by aliens! Those entertainment mafia lawyers are probably the first from Earth having first contact.

@socketwench There's a probe carrying a DMCA takedown notice following a few million miles behind Voyager.

@dabnotu @socketwench that's neat, and if you open the page's source code, there are download links to the mp3s!

@socketwench Aliens: We attack you due to copyright laws on our planet.

The other option is to go to intergalatic court and get your punishment there.

@socketwench the aliens are going to have hell to pay if they show up playing that record :ms_thinking:
