Comment Re:I know you hate the RIAA (Score 1) 267

So, what your suggesting is another witch hunt to rival the quest to snuff out communism, when the real cause of this "problem" can is your beloved RIAA. If the music that was available was worth listening to, more people would buy CD's. The other thing that this neglects is that I can, quite legally, go online to get CD's. With stores like iTunes, and other following their business model, your "family friendly record store" business model is becomming outdated, and you have to assume that piracy is to blame rather than bad music and better, legal, distribution. Oh, and the reason books sell better is that THEY don't have DRM software that built in.

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
