Those Wacky RIAA Types: At It Again

RIAA Goes After Satellite Radio is discussed at Slashdot.

Wouldn't the industry be more profitable if it worked on getting costs out of its distribution, helping with Internet innovations, and stopped slapping consumers?

Anyone who can remember the quote (memory here not what it was) from a Rapper in the mid-1990s talking about how the Music Industry was the fat man with holes in its pockets?

For extra fun try NPR's Justice Talking "The First Amendment in a Digital Age" which aired on 16 September 2005 with Jack Valenti, Floyd Abrams (Pentagon Papers), and Lawrence Lessig (Creative Commons).
