It'll be interesting to see where this goes.
I really don't understand why the RIAA is still fighting new tech. It makes no sense for the bottom line of producers everywhere. Sure, there are illegal copies out there, but to fight the way the entire industry is slanting is stupidity at it's finest. No-One wants to use portable CD players anymore, they are huge in comparison to just about any mp3 player. Instead of fighting it, they need to adapt the tried and true ways to make money from it and pass it on. What they are going after now isn't even enforceable! Idiots.
Next thing, they're going to go after people singing hymms in church...
They can't be that desperate for money. They can't.
Doh didn't see that thread... oh well I guess everyone needs to start a thread that gets locked
Yeah, you're finally an official member
I don't think it's about the money, rather trying to scare people back to buying CDs, instead of embracing what technology has to offer.
I spent years looking through the window, wondering what it was like.
We meet every 3rd Tuesday. There's punch and pie.
is there anything these idiots won't try? They are the Jack Thompsons of the music world.
So how do they expect us to play music on our mp3 players???? Just shove a CD in it hoping it will play it???
Fuck the RIAA. In the ass. With a sharp stick.
That's really ridiculous what they're doing, trying to scare us with legal action just so they can earn money through CDs! What if some of us can't afford buying heaps of CDs of the songs we listen to? It'll be waste of a CD by buying one just to listen to a song.
Man, what is this world coming to?
Now if only people would simply never buy any new music ever again the RIAA would go away forever! But that will never happen...
Haha 1st Gen iPod Shuffle in the pic
This is some bullshit here, who the fuck are they to charge people for listening to their music on a new device?
Just for shits and giggles:
But it looked like a wafer.
I'm going to start a business where I alienate my entire customer base too!!!
I'm probably as self-righteous as anyone about stealing IP, but if the RIAA wants to suggest that I don't have the right to convert my CDs to .mp3 format, they're out of their fucking mind. I bought the right to listen to music. How I listen to it is my business, and I'd love to see them try and stop me.
You mean with a serrated knife? That you just keep twisting and twisting?
I have over 200 CDs in my collection! I have a computer and an MP3 player at my disposal. I officially challenge the RIAA to come to my house, take me by the hand, and physically stop me from listening to the music that I purchased in any format I deem fit. seriously, I hope they're reading this.
