The time has come, the walrus said, to kill the recording industry.
The RIAA is now arguing that copying your CDs to your computer is piracy. Even if you never share the song files, it's piracy. Even if you purchased the CDs legally, if you make a copy, for any reason, it's piracy.
I suggest we the buying public stop buying CDs produced by the recording industry. I suggest we stop buying any music - CDs or downloads - that is produced via the traditional recording industry. I will be the first to make the vow. From this day forward, I will only purchase independently produced and distributed music.
Let the recording industry legislate and litigate itself onto the dung heap of history, where it belongs. I will not give it one more dime. Ever.
