Ok, I just found this on a Beta news site I visit often (NeoWin.net) and I just had to post something about it… The wonderful people at that fine organization – yes, I’m referring to the RIAA… Well, they have this awesome idea for beating music piracy once and for all… They are going to make a music player that records your fingerprints when you use it – and only lets you play your music – and won’t allow copied music! Come on RIAA, you’re going to invest millions of dollars into this technology, why?? You could do better by lowering your prices – stop spending all this money trying to fight the “war” and embrace it instead! Nah, that would be way too easy – it’s more fun for them to treat americans like they are mindless sheep and will pay outrageous prices for mediocre music… Is that really what it’s coming to? Someone please give the RIAA a clue.
