Another chilling article on the RIAA over on the EFF website:
after spending countless dollars on failed advertising campaigns against peer-to-peer file-sharing, the RIAA has created a classroom activity to outsource the campaign to schoolchildren. Next up: A classroom activity where kids police peer-to-peer networks in search of potential infringers!
The sooner musicians can work with companies that aren’t part of the RIAA the better. Maybe labels should produce an “artists advisory” sticker: “attention: this company supports civil misinformation and the removal of citizen’s fair-use rights by any means. Get someone else to distribute your music”.
