I think the RIAA is just going after people because they can. Pure greed. I guess it’s like alternative energy - the big corporations will refuse to innovate (or at least release it to the unwashed masses) until their financial pain becomes unbearable. Or until they come up with something sexy enough that we all MUST have. But the RIAA’s motives are sickeningly transparent. Are they going after those who download an obscure song by a struggling progressive rock band that no one has ever heard of? No. You can’t find that song with Bearshare/Limewire anyway. And most who listen to that genre are looking for quality - and are often preferring to hold a real CD with liners notes in hand. No, the irony of all this is they’re going after someone who downloads too much Brittany, or Christina, or whomever. “Artists” who, all too often, aren’t really musicians or songwriters - more like glorified dancing lip-synchers. The same “artists” whose music is blaring out of every cheap $19 radio (with built in cassette recorder) ad nauseum in every bar, place of employment, or teen-age bedroom in America. That’s because they’d prefer you got your free music packaged neatly next to an advert for a new car, or just after a DJ shoehorns his political biases once again into your morning commute.
