The RIAA is insane - [11:17 AM]

TechCrunch [via James Robertson]: "If the Judge rules that the RIAA is right, any person in United States who has ever ripped a legally purchased CD will become a copyright thief and a potential target of the RIAA, and that means just about every iPod owner in the country." - If I were a musician I'd ditch my record contract as soon as possible, contact Apple, and negotiate a deal for distribution via iTunes DIRECTLY. Forget the middle man, you don't need a big corporation that presses CD's. Hire a small dedicated team and put more in your own pocket. If the big players disappear it'll be their own darned fault.
