RIAA Rant

We all know that the RIAA, which apparently is trying a little too hard to protect the profits and salaries of artists all across the industry, but I really have to ask this, can it really be done another way? Does this company have to resort to suing individual users and pretty much putting them in such financial disarray that some, if not most of them, would be paying their court fees clear into their forties, and Im not talking about the adults whom were sued, no, Im talking about the children, 11, 12, and 13 year old school children whom probably didn't know any better, shared their music library online and is now hit with a $120,000 USD, to $300,000 USD fine.

My personal rant is this, its never going to go away, its never going to stop, it's like trying to piss a forest fire out, as long as there are willing people, it will always be. So why can't these people, business men, corporate leaders and the like, figure this crap out? It's not rocket science, it's not an out there, above your head theory. So anyway, they finally attack Limewire, sure, good target, thousands of gigs of music being swapped like some internet black market, it was about time they did it, but really now, too little too late? You take out one application, three more pop up, blah, I guess as long as people vote for ape looking republicans, there will always be idiots out there running companies who are too busy ruining people's lives then go and take care of the issue at hand.. I don't know, I'd like to hear from the people that actually do come across this blog, that's why Im going to open it up so that anyone can come in and comment, voice their opinion, and share ideas of this issue, hell if it goes somewhere, I'll do it more often...

P.S. ..I went searching for a graphic to use with this blog post, apparently I couldnt find an appropriate one, they all dealt with terrorism and nazism and all types nasties..-sigh-
