The bassist and businessman behind the legendary rock band KISS was on hand at the MIPCOM convention in Cannes, France on Tuesday. And Gene Simmons had a message for aspiring entertainers everywhere: sue first, think later.

"Make sure your brand is protected," Simmons warned during a panel discussion. "Make sure there are no incursions. Be litigious. Sue everybody. Take their homes, their cars. Don't let anybody cross that line."

And that includes all those naughty girls and boys with their BitTorrent and Limewire kits. Double for them, in fact.

"The music industry was asleep at the wheel," Simmons complained, "and didn't have the balls to sue every fresh-faced, freckle-faced college kid who downloaded material. And so now we're left with hundreds of thousands of people without jobs. There's no industry."

but with an attitude like that, mebbe some p2p'ers would put out the word and then their concert ticket sales drop...

Then what would he say?
What you think is important is rarely urgent
But what you think is Urgent is rarely important

Just remember that...
