Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

The Artists Fight Back

The recording industry has been lamenting over the past few years about how music sharing on the internet has hurt their sales, and that artists’ rights are being violated. Of course, most geeks who burn MP3s know that they’re just blowing smoke.

The RIAA is not working in the artists’ best interests. They don’t care about art, they care about profits. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against profits. I’m pure capitalist, through-and-through. But you can still make profits without being greedy to the point of illegality.

[update:] Fight piracy — regulate baby monitors!

[another update] Oh, what the heck — let’s have some fun with this.
