RIAA Says Backlash From Lawsuits Was Less Than Expected
from the useless-consumers dept
The Boston Globe is running an interview with Cary Sherman of the RIAA talking about the recent lawsuits filed against those the RIAA claims have been sharing music illegally. When asked about the backlash from the lawsuits, Sherman says: “it’s been a remarkably small public relations backlash” and that they expected it to be worse. He also says that CD sales are up, and he thinks the lawsuits are the reason why – though, that can obviously be questioned.
Comments on “RIAA Says Backlash From Lawsuits Was Less Than Expected”
Maybe the public outcry was less than expected, but I think they are leaving out the “silent majority” (to coin a phrase) that are pissed off and plan to take action, but just aren’t being vocal about it. I, personally, am no longer buying new CDs of any kind – only used.
