Read more about this at http://www.myspace.com/crystaltheft, where Trevor Brown, whose images were allegedly plagarised, left the following statement:

Trent Reznor is a strong supporter of the license and inviting these kiddies on tour with him is, erm, somewhat incongruous?! – enough noise needs to be made about this to force mr reznor to do doing something about it (or look a fool)

failing that, at least get the little music thieves booed off the stage – their extreme arrogance can’t stand humiliation – it’d be beautiful : )
