Yeah, the RIAA is a big credibility disintegration field.... Criticizing the only online music store people actually use is out of line. Unless, of course, you're on the RIAA's side, and you're getting a kick of prosecuting teenagers for stealing music instead of providing them with a viable alternative....GaelDesign said:Now that's funny. The former leader of the RIAA critisizes Apple for using DRM to protect iTMS's music files. Wow. Is she so out of touch with reality that she doesn't realize the irony of her comments? The reason the iPod is a closed system is because of the DRM! Oh, Apple doesn't want to play in Microsoft's sandbox? Boo hoo.
GOOD GOD! WTF is this @#$%&* talking about? Is this a joke? Is she that stupid or is she just a pathetic liar? Both of those sentences are outright falsehoods, and anyone with an even passing knowledge of the iPod or a Rosen's history with the RIAA knows that she's full of it. I'm not even going to read the rest of it. Life's too short to spend it reading someone else's lies.The new iPod my girlfriend gave me is a trap. Yeah, it is great looking and I really love the baby blue leather case but when, oh when, will Steve Jobs let me buy music from somewhere other than the Apple iTunes store and put it on my iPod?
I spent 17 years in the music business the last several of which were all about pushing and prodding the painful development of legitimate on-line music.
