Jackpot Winners Face Music

Lottery winners owe money to a music company. An Iowa couple, winners of $69 million lottery jackpot now fight an old battle with reps for music artists.   Read More - Winners Face Music

The day before the couple was to file bankruptcy for debts, including an old judgment against them as song stealing penalty fines, they found out they were now multi-millionaires!

At the lottery jackpot ceremony, the Iowa couple was told that a record company filed a lien against their winnings.   "Gosh, the money came in the nick of time. But, we have lot of bills to pay before we can enjoy it," said winner Ann Jones.

Once upon a time, the music industry saw how Napster, a song sharing platform put free music online. They did not like it. For them, it was letting a genie escape out of the bottle. It can be hard to put one back in it’s bottle.

So, the musicians filed lawsuits against deadbeat music thieves back in the old Internet days. They now lurk like collection agency hawks ready to swoop in and snag jackpots and windfalls of song stealers, now able to pay the old fines.

People owe big fines from being caught uploading MP3 music files. In the wild days of the early Internet, folks would swap songs free and easily like they would casual sex partners, throwing caution to the wind.

Pay what you owe in life when possible. "They can now pay those recording artists they had cheated on like lovers," says a music industry expert.

"Record companies watch for inheritances and good luck fortunes in order to pounce and demand payment if you still owe them one penny," added the expert.   ◆   Click to Close

Cops frown on green thumbs

  A 65 year-old told the Drug & Booze Agency (DBA) she did not know it was illegal to grow big quantities of cannabis without a permit.   The DBA Cops took Agnes Arber in for questions.   See More - Green Thumbs

  When released, she found TV crews camped outside her home. "Gosh, a reporter explained how DBA cop ghouls confiscated my plants. I don’t think $500,000 was the street value," claims the green thumb spinster.

  Allegedly, Agnes sold plants to a fake hemp broker to use as twine in artisanal macramé designs.   The plants are now in the DBA storage center and may be used as evidence against her in a court of law.

  Agnes is charged with unlicensed cannabis cultivation and faces up to one year in the slammer.   She hopes for just a small fine and a slap on the wrist since she likes to keep busy making quilts and weaving.   ●   Click to Close
