The record labels are fuctioning with an out dated paradigm.
RIAA can end pirating any time .
Reduce the cost to buy music on the Internet.
They are not selling CD's just rearranging bytes
on someones PC, cost after recording is ZERO.
The cost to upload a song to someones PC is
zero, it is a virtual product.
Make the cost so low people would rather
buy the music from a safe site vs risk downloading
it from a pirate site.
And the music indrutry does NOT have clean hands.
Remember Sonys Rootkit?
Now the music indrustry is involoved in DOS attacks.
Where is the FBI?

accusations of copyright infringement. Most have settled
out of court for a few thousand dollars.
Not to mention Universal Vendi bankrupted MP3.com
for allowing its surfers to up load copies of music the

Destroyed the worlds biggest
cultural treasure trove of independent world music.

indi music from all nations of Earth.
That was available FREE.

Maybe, time will tell.
I've quit buying Music in protest.
I buy Only music directly from the Independent
( with pirate eye patch on )
