    Don't be so hard on musicians who sell their work, EZ. It is how they make their living, after all.

    He's done pretty well for himself. Maybe he can afford artistic integrity. If I were a songwriter, and Dunder Mifflin approached me with a trainload of money to use one of my songs, I'd sign off. And apologize to no one.

    And nobody is asking you to apologize. But don't expect me to buy your CD or download your songs, when I can hear if for free with Dwight and Michael in the background.
