- "It's not kids, it's companies. People are making money off this piracy" - Rich Bengloff of A2IM
- "Oh joy there apparently are NO provisions in ACTA advising artists & creators of their rights. (only a campaign to 'educate' public)."
- FMC's Health Insurance Navigation Tool for musicians: http://bit.ly/OlFeH
- "About 70% of people in Nashville didn't have flood insurance. They were not in flood plane so they didn't buy it."
- Austin Schlick, General Counsel of the FCC on the FCC's authority over the internet and the third way "w/o broadband oversight, FCC cannot modernize USF, protect privacy on broadband, promote access for those with disabilities."
