Submission + - RIAA defends suits against college students

An anonymous reader writes: Mitch Bainwol chairman and CEO of RIAA and Cary Sherman it's president wrote a piece defending their new campaign targeting college students. "It's not just the loss of current sales that concerns us, but the habits formed in college that will stay with these students for a lifetime. This is a teachable moment — an opportunity to educate these particular students about the importance of music in their lives and the importance of respecting and valuing music as intellectual property."

mqduck writes: "The British may have finally decided that their whole "democracy" experiment was a good idea and that now's the time to take it out of probation. No, they're not making the Queen get a job and pay rent, but they are going to turn the House of Lords into a fully elected body, getting rid of the seats guaranteed to the descendants of feudal lords. I hope that cake we've been saving for them since 1782 is still good!"
