For those that missed it, the full-length version of KISS frontman Gene Simmons’ headline session at TV & entertainment market MIPCOM early October was the most-watched video of the show. Not, one fears, for anything he said about his reality TV series “Family Jewels”; rather for his tirade against music pirates and the majors at the end of his session. “The music industry was asleep at the wheel. It didn’t have the balls to go and sue every fresh-faced, freckle-faced college kid who downloaded material. So now we’re left with hundreds of thousands of people without jobs” (and it goes on after that!). Result: video picked up by Ars Technica, NME, the Guardian & more; and Simmons’ site being taken down by internet anarchists Anonymous. Also read MIPBlog’s liveblog report here.
