I signed the petition. I doubt the RIAA cares, and I doubt most politicians care as Sony, Colombia, etc...can offer them alot more money than we voters can.
Of course, we could vote them all out...but we americans are stupid and get choices of loser #1 or loser #2. It is a lose/lose situation.
The fact is, the state of affairs in American politics is F'd up.
Don't vote for the major parties and see what happens.
