Universal Chairman Throws Himself A Pity Party

morris.jpgUniversal Music CEO Doug Morris has garnered considerable attention for his fire-breathing dislike of technology, as well as his company’s copyright-infringement lawsuit against MySpace. But what’s this? Just in time for the holidays, he wants the world to know that he’s sensitive:

[Morris] added: “I hate being in the middle of this and I don’t want to be looked at as the suing chairman.

“It’s the worst thing that could ever happen to me,” he said, while vowing to continue defending Universal’s content.

Someone get this guy a Livejournal! How about this, Doug–once you get MySpace to settle out of court, which you’re apparently banking on, we start calling you “the bullying-by-judicial-force chairman.” It’s a little bit of a tongue twister, but if it’ll make you feel better, we’ll happily change our tune.
