Courtney Love on the RIAA, Napster, and Lots of Other Stuff
from the wow dept
Okay, this article is long but totally worth reading. It’s a speech that Courtney Love gave about her opinions on the music business, the RIAA, and Napster. I don’t know much about Courtney Love. I don’t know much about her music. The speech, though, is fascinating. She claims she doesn’t know much about Napster, but I think she clearly gets it. She does say she’s on the side of Lars and Metallica, but the more you read, the more you realize that she isn’t in agreement with them. She understands that the music industry is where the real piracy occurs in that they’ve built artificial barriers to getting music out into the world. This is a great reply to the Edgar Bronfman speech we discussed here in detail two weeks ago. There’s a ton more that can be said about this speech, but I’ve already taken up too much space.
