RIAA Ropes Music Stars Into Marketing Campaign Against Piracy
from the why-not-focus-on-actually-making-good-music? dept
Not really a surprise, but as the music industry continues to spend all of their time and resources trying to fight music sharing instead of focusing on things like (say) new business models and producing good music, they’ve now roped some music stars into helping them make their point. Soon we’re going to see commercials starring Britney Spears, Madonna, and others trying to tell us that sharing music is stealing. Of course, I imagine most people who use music sharing programs couldn’t care less what Britney thinks of them (and I doubt Britney even realizes what music sharing really is). Anyone want to fund commercials with Janis Ian explaining why music sharing is good for musicians?
