Yes, that's how we discovered the problem. And thanks for the sympathy,
I will relay it to my client who has gone through the trouble of
clearing copyright on all of the approximately 500 that needed to be.
This may be an alternate approach - send a threatening letter to the
offending site notifying them that they're violating copyright.

However, it would be more fun to replace the mp3 that people get with a
small one that offers free sex chat from the site owner's home phone

Yeah, or a second idea I have is to schedule a task that will rename
all the mp3s and update the database accordingly.
