Browsing Youtube, Brannon came across a lovely song. Checking the various music store websites, he determined the song was only available for purchase in the Japanese iTunes store, which would not accept his US credentials nor allow him to sign up from the US. He sighed - as much as he’d like to support the artist, he’d done his due pillagence, so he simply ripped the mp3 from the Youtube video.
