oh no, the idea is to buy a performance of the John Cage piece in the week leading up to Christmas, it's a follow on to last years plan to stop Simon Cowells X-Factor winners getting the hugely commercial and publicity generating position. Last year this resulted in Rage against the Machines "Killing in the name" getting that position.

By extension the real problems are 1) Is it illegal to download silence, and 2) Do DJ's play the whole track 3) Are DJs allowed to talk over the track?

Everything else is just noise...
