Fuck the RIAA and MPAA

 So on my wanderings through the internet today I came across this picture, which has the front page of Yahoo's news site. Take a look at the picture and tell me what you think.


Isn't that sick? My stance on 'illegal' downloading is that sharing is good for almost everybody. I love music. I have over 4000 songs in my iTunes. I probably paid for maybe 50 of them. In terms of music, I like to support the artists I like by going out to their concerts rather than paying for their CDs. At least then, the band can visibly see my contribution to them, rather than all of my money going to the record labels.

That's another thing....record labels claim they need this money to find new bands, but there is no way that is true in our day and age. If you're talented, upload some songs to Youtube, post it to Facebook or whatever. Your skill will (hopefully) let you rise to the top. Who needs a record label to get your name out there?

Sorry to get a little rant-y on you guys. Thanks for the support, as usual!

If you are going to rant about someone, then the RIAA is a good target.
This is just some bullshit scare tactic because they know they cannot stem the tide of 'sharing.'
Does ANYONE like the RIAA?

They can not ever EVER stop Piracy.
Seriously, it's a snowball that's the size of fucking jupiter, and it just keeps getting bigger.
The fines are WAY too high. I say if someone gets caught and they HAVE to press charges? Then ONLY the amount of what they "stole."

If every download was to be fined for, it would exceed the amount of money on the entire planet!

What mayhem said there. Also, over here in Holland it's legal to download, just not to upload. But I don't think we have those crazy high fines if you get caught. Not sure tho.

Scary thing is, the RIAA is a bunch of old men that have as much computer literacy as your grandpa, trying to pass laws that are completely retarded and misguided.
