Sorry if I git this in the wrong group. What spurred me was two things that I found on the web, one on MR, the other on Apple Insider: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=112884&page=1&pp=40 and http://www.appleinsider.com/backpage/ From my rant in the first posting I mentioned: I am tired of hearing that people feel this way or that in support of the consumer/listener of music; that the industry is wrong. This is now the opportunity to put your dollars/pounds/yens or what have you where your mouths are. Success is not a given in a boycott. Never is. But if you never stand up to be counted against the people who decide what you pay, what you listen to, how you behave; then they have won. Tomorrow is March 1st. Just 60 days till the official start of the boycott. You can start it at any time you wish prior to the May 1st date. This is a grassroots boycott at this time. This is not a US only boycott. I see it as a worldwide boycott of the music indusrty. I will as time allows get email addresses (with others help maybe) of key people in the industry to let them know of the coming boycott. Keep in mind that ant "free" downloads during that week on ITMS would be against the meaning of the boycott. I really want to know how many people would support this type of boycott. Not how many people think that it would be successful. Not to make this anything like Rosa Parks and the Civil Rights movement; but it may take multiple "actions" before the industry responds. In the one thread I mentioned, some took and said that they would return to P2P. Some trashed their illegal songs in favor of going legal. It is time for those of us that are trying to support the industry, to stand up and be counted. And say enough is enough. That we are willing to pay a fair price for our music. That they don't need to send their "jack-booted" RIAA goons with lawsuits out after us. That there are many of us willing to pay a fair price for our music. That by-the-song downloads at the 99 cents or less level (US dollars) is fair. Any more than that, and we won't take it.
