[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2010/08/DnXmFH.jpg[/newsimage]The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has asked Google to include new wording into its current net neutrality plan to also address music piracy and child pornography.

â€œWe all share the goal of a robust Internet that is highly accessible, secure and safe for individuals and commerce,â€ the letter written by the RIAA to Google CEO Eric Schmidt reads. â€œAn Internet predicated on order, rather than chaos, facilitates achievement of this goal.â€
And I want to drive to work and not have to deal with all of these stupid drivers who can’t drive worth a darn.
The RIAA must think everyone is stupid. I guess if you have spent all that time pulling the wool over Congress’ eyes you’d think everyone is stupid too. So the RIAA wants to interconnect the anti child porn push with their bottom line. Maybe they should listen to some of that rap shit they are putting out and they could set and example before trying to conquer the world with a decency campaign. Of course they want someone else to foot the bill to protect their profits…as usual.
The RIAA has become the mouse that roared. The recording industry has pretty much reached a level of insignificance with hundreds of independent artists and scores of independent labels. Now if those dweebs begging for recording contracts would start protecting their publishing rights perhaps the new wave of artists and media producers could have their chance without having the blood sucked out of them.
This worries me because so many ex-RIAA lawyers and executives are now part of Obama’s presidential cabinet and staff. Let’s hope all that influence doesn’t pressure the FCC into adopting the RIAA’s agenda.

That’s news to me I would think the freedom press organization group would’ve mentioned that already right? So who are these buggers??
Quitte recently I commented under my breath about someone…
Apparrently it wasn’t completely “under my breath”, because a Judge heard me say it and corrected me by saying that I had just made a redundant statement…
the Judge in question is NOT a “Lawyer” (elected) and shared my opinion of the person to whom the comment was directed.
I suspect that lawers for the obama administration fall in the same catagory.
the commenr? “Scumbag Lawyer”
…to also address music piracy and child pornography.
They dare equate those two???
The problem isn’t everybody else. The problem is the RIAA and it’s members. As a consumer if the choice is paying licensing for scores of products, having technology hampered, dealing with DRM schemes, having the air waves screwed up, having the Internet screwed up, having Congress bought off OR doing away with the recording industry moguls; Well, I think I can do without today’s recording industry. I bet I’m not the only person who feels this way *laughs
