Looks like the RIAA is up to their old tricks again (by which I mean that they are violently trying to oppose something that has already become an established protocol with music)..

My disgust for the RIAA is well documented by now. My whole problem with them is that (a)They are making enemies of their consumers and (b)their model of delivery is enrtirely outdated.

That deserves a big ole WTF??

Rather than trying to stem the oncoming tide, they need to figure out how to embrace the new wave.
