False Advertising: CRIA Becomes 'Music Canada,' Even Though It's Not
from the it's-not-about-the-music dept
TorrentFreak points out that the much maligned Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA) has apparently decided to change its name to Music Canada. I'm wondering if that's false advertising. The group represents the big record labels, not music. In fact, many of its policies are anti-musician. Of course, there are others who have pointed out that the "Canadian" bit of their name has been false advertising as well, since the group basically takes orders from the RIAA. So, if you have an organization that isn't really run by Canadian interests, and who doesn't represent music -- but a small group of middlemen who profit from screwing over musicians -- is it really fair to call yourself Music Canada?
