Wow Robert, Jordan, Gloria, and Wilson.
Because of paid shills like you, a handy little tool was put in place to identify when multiple anonymous cowards were posting from the same location. See that pretty little purple box next to EACH of your posts?
What red light camera company do you work for? Do you think we are so idiotic enough to think you are actually 4 concerned citizens?
I live in Nashville, Belmont University graduate actually (Was College until about 25 years ago). About half the students are in the music business program, great intern programs with so many music companies in town.
I'm really curious if the people at all the music companies really believe this BS about "theft" or if it is simply lip service as it involves their income. I have many many friends in the business and few of them seem to get it. "It's the way we have always done things" is a standard answer.
I am also blown away at the fairly frequent editorial pieces in the local papers and business rags that seem to be channeling directly from Locke's brain. The current push is how the radio stations are stealing from hard working musicians and writers because they (radio) oppose the RIAA performance plan being pushed. Talk about destroying the industry that has promoted your business for decades...
I found out recently that one of my co-workers was the lead (Jane Doe as it were) defendant in the Boston University lawsuits of a few years ago. A number of other students piggybacked on with her case, which they won. RIAA did not get their personal information. I say victory as the RIAA could have appealed the ruling but failed to do so.
Joel Tenenbaum, another BU student, didn't join their case and he was the one that got hit with the $675,000 fine.
It was pretty cool to have been reading all about this the past few years and then find out I know one of the leads in the cases I was reading about.
