Universal Music fights for its (copy)rights!

'Defendants have made infringement free and easy. (MySpace) has turned MySpace Videos into a vast virtual warehouse for pirated copies of music videos and songs.' Why then do fellow capitalists delight in portraying Universal Music as 'mafioso' 'goats' playing 'hard ball in the digital realm'?

Universal Music has filed suit against MySpace for infringing on the copyrights of thousands of its songs and videos, saying MySpace “friends” have been allowed to unlawfully upload copyright music videos:

"Defendants have made infringement free and easy. (MySpace) has turned MySpace Videos into a vast virtual warehouse for pirated copies of music videos and songs."

By seeking the remedies it is entitled to pursue under the American legal and capitalist systems, Universal is not only protecting its content ownership interests, it is fulfilling its legal obligation to uphold the financial interests of its shareholders.

Why then do fellow capitalists delight in portraying Universal as “mafioso” “goats”  playing “hard ball in the digital realm”?
