Society's forgotten child. When I saw a column in the Globe today by Janis Ian about the music industry's overwrought crackdown on Internet music, my first instinct was to snicker. Who knew Ian was still alive? But then I read it, and realized that her current obscurity is exactly her point. Her piece is not online (guess she wouldn't sign the freelancer's agreement!), but I found a long version of the same argument here, on her website.
