Pop star Lily Allen got into an online spat with her fans in the UK. Allen came out in favor of a government proposal to clamp down on illegal downloading: if you get caught downloading copyrighted material three times, you lose your Internet access.

Fans revolted and Dan Bull was inspired to write "Dear Lily," which has been going viral. A manifesto of the Cyber Generation? Rafer Guzman, entertainment writer Newsday, says, um... manifesto? Wait a minute.
