RIAA Says Lawsuits Are Working Out Great
from the it's-all-a-publicity-campaign dept
News.com is running an interview with Cary Sherman from the RIAA, where they’re giving him a bunch of softball questions about the lawsuits. He basically says they don’t care if this makes them look bad, because the whole point is to get attention and get people talking about the issue of file sharing. Well, in that he’s succeeded. However, if the article we posted earlier about kids’ thoughts on the lawsuits is any indication – all that “talking” isn’t such a good thing for the recording industry. People are talking and realizing that these lawsuits are going too far. It’s making people realize all of the problems with the music industry, and why they want a legal method to share music instead of being forced into supporting an obsolete business model. Sherman suggests they’re going to keep suing to keep the discussion going – but he might want to take a look at the direction that discussion is headed in.
