A couple months into the new acedemic year and one thing is clear – RIAA wants to sue the crap out of college kids for listening to music.
Every day it seems there is some new story about how RIAA is trying to force colleges and universities to share info about what their students are downloading and sharing so that RIAA can then assault their students with criminal charges, court dates and mammouth lawyer fees that can often result in students being forced to drop out of school altogether.
Considering that there is no real proof that music piracy has a direct impact on the profits of labels and that there are real problems facing America perhaps it is time to reign in RIAA and stop them from screwing up the lives of people who have done little more than click on a link.
Please, Presendent-elect Obama, call these people in and tell them to stop the unnecessary abuse.
