Submission + - RIAA to be disbanded

newtley writes: "The members of the Big 4 Organized Music cartel have announced the cessation of the sue 'em all marketing campaign under which they've been trying to persuade consumers to buy corporate download product. "We have issued instructions to the RIAA and our other enforcement organizations around the world to immediately withdraw all lawsuits and to refund court costs and other expenses incurred by people sued," says Phil McBoot, chairman of the Big 4 Working Group, in a statement. "We were acting on the advice of Mitch Bainwol, Carry Sherman, Jonathan Lamy and Jenny Engebretsen, which we now realise was wrong. We humbly and sincerely apologise to anyone who may have inadvertently been harmed by the actions of the RIAA, BPI, IFPI and similar bodies actions.""
