RIAA = Rights in America Abandoned

It was bad enough for Sony to distribute a rootkit on their CD's but for the RIAA to applaude Sony for wilfully destroying American's personal property is beyond belief.

I'm all for paying artists for thier work and when I find music that I like I buy it. The issue that I have with the recording industry is that they only focus on the crap that is popular at the time.

With all the advances in digital music over the last few years it would cost the record companies next to nothing to put up much more of their catalog and keep it DRMed. If all music was available legally, I believe most people would pay for this music.

This site is almost as much fun as the Blue Ball Machine. Wonder how long it will last before the record companies shut them down for trying to brighten someone's day with music.
