RIAA Backlash has begun

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by mcbassdude, Aug 4, 2003.


  1. The RIAA backlash has begun. The press has started to really pick up on what these bullies are up to.All the networks are running pieces questioning the logic of sueing. NPR did a nice piece on it today.
    People start writing your congressmen and women!
    The NPR report pointed out how the RIAA are using sites such as Big Champagne who track download trends to help market product. They are getting marketing data from the file shareres! Seems they want their cake and eat it too.
    They need to hear a big loud unified voice that this is simply not the way to deal with the problem.
    They need to develop a model that is fairly priced and easily accessed and distribute the wealth fairly.
    They need to embrace the fans not litigate them!
    Peace
