RIAA decries drop in CD sales

A couple of weeks after starting their legal action against file traders, file sharing dropping noticeably.

What this article says is that CD sales dropped a similar amount and shows no sign of leveling off.

Somehow, I have a very hard time finding any sympathy for these convicted price-fixers, price-gougers, lawsuit-happy, imperious, arrogant sons of bitches. The RIAA first sued P2P companies, then they went after the users’ ISPs (with the exception of AOL – I wonder why?), and now are busy clogging our legal system with friviolous and questionable lawsuits.

They have declared war on their own customers. As the ones with the money, I believe that absolutely no quarter be given to the RIAA cartel – I am no longer buying CDs until they take a more reasonable stance towards legal distribution of online music. The old ways will no longer work.

Burn, baby, burn.
