Here we go again, I personally was hoping that Mr. Valenti actually had a clue when he said he didnt want to follow in the RIAAs footsteps,but I guess I was hoping for too much when I thought a overpaid hollywood exec would have a clue. Lets trace the RIAAs "footsteps" 1999-2001 Napster was in existence kicking hard, cd sales? breaking new records every year. RIAA does the traditionally retarded thing and decides to shut it down cause they are losing soo much money, what happens? Cd sales start to drop (consistent with the economy going to shit), what does the RIAA do next? start suing their customers. Wonder what this is going to lead to. Now lets look at the MPAA, last year they broke the record of movie ticket sales, Home dvd sales are up 57% for the first half of 2k3 (according to another article here), now what does Mr. Valenti wanna do, follow the RIAAs footsteps and start SUING consumers, can anyone guess where this is going to lead to?
