College Students Are No Longer Music Fans

Posted by: Julia Conny (01/16/08)
Why is the RIAA targeting college students? Because "their appreciation for intellectual property has not yet reached its full development." Read the full interview with Cara Duckworth, spokeswoman for the RIAA, here.

Well that was an interesting read....

"Oftentimes street peddlers selling bootlegged copies of music are also involved in large-scale drug and weapons trafficking, and we find clear evidence of that on raids."

really...large-scale...really?

The program they have set up doesn't seem like anything more than a quick grab for cash (pay $3,000 now or face a lawsuit). But man from this interview it sounds like they really hate college kids.

Exactly what I was thinking. But whatever, they're fighting a losing battle anyway. If they think they can honestly get everyone, they're the real idiots.

Someone let me know who the fuck the RIAA are? Theres an organisation out there who 'maintain' the music industry, but surely the company mentioned in this thread and other threads on AP.net are just made up of idiots who just make absolute crap up?

so according to this, if you download music illegally, you are more likely to traffic drugs and weapons.
