As to the RIAA possessing stolen property, they don’t as they really have little control over such things as artwork used in videos, concerts, album covers… etc. If they had any sort of control over such things I’m sure they’d fill it with anti-p2p slogans and ads for $20 CD’s. So obviously they don’t have such control. And if the director of the video is a RIAA member, it makes little difference as to the attachment of the RIAA. It was not an RIAA decision, it was this man acting as the video’s maker. Plain and simple. You can’t blame an organizations based upon what one member may or may not do outside of the job. They are seperate actions, but I’d really like to see some proof as to the video maker being a member of the RIAA. I don’t buy that one bit and it sounds like a stretch to me. And as to the “law” you know as well as I do if any suit was brought against the RIAA in such a case as this it would be thrown out. Again, the RIAA is not in control of those matters and it leaves it up to the makers of the material. It’s the same way Vanilla Ice could be sued for ripping off that music from Queen’s Under Pressure. Was the RIAA sued? Nope. That’s because reguardless of how you try and twist the law, the RIAA didn’t screw up for once. I’m all for RIAA bashing, but by trying to jump after them for things they haven’t done is a bit over the top. It’s only going to encourage the non-thinking behaviour and greed that alot of board members have shown. Making baseless claims like this only make the problem larger.
