Business Week Trashes RIAA's Strategy

from the worst-move-ever dept

Even Business Week, which you might expect to side with the big recording industry over the consumer, has an article suggesting that the latest lawsuits from the industry are their worst move yet, and things are only going to get worse for them. The article points out, as many people have been saying, that each move by the recording industry only drives those sharing music files further underground while making them even less receptive to any eventual embrace from the industry. While we’ve discussed this plenty of times, what’s interesting here is the fact that a magazine like Business Week is coming to the same conclusion. For a while, the industry insisted that it was only a bunch of kids “stealing” music who were against the actions they were taking. However, when big name business publications start trashing the strategy as well, you’d think the industry might start to pay attention.
