The RIAA brings a story from The Onion to life

#1
The Onion Story
"These radio stations are extremely popular," Rosen said. "They flagrantly string our songs together in 'uninterrupted music blocks' of up to 70 minutes in length, broadcasting nearly one CD's worth of product without a break, and they actually have the gall to allow businesses to advertise between songs. It's bad enough that they're giving away our music for free, but they're actually making a profit off this scheme."

Broadcasting music without payment is akin to piracy, the industry says.
"It's a form of piracy, if you will, but not in the classic sense as we think of it," said Martin Machowsky, a musicFirst spokesman. "Today we gifted them a can of herring, about their argument that they provide promotional value. We think that's a red herring. Nobody listens to the radio for the commercials."

Wow! I am in disbelief, :eek: stunned really, this has to be, quite possibly the catalyst for a shoot all lawyers on sight pogrom. Have we regressed as a society that these, and I hesitate to call them vertebrates actually call this thinking?

It is time to take off all warning labels... that this is an actual legal argument is just stunning in it's idiocy

Those RIAA lawyers....:suprised:
