RIAA Hates College Students

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has once again proved that it has no soul. For those of you who are not familiar with the RIAA, they are the trade group that respresents the recording industry in the United States.They are also the people that have sued a deceased grandmother, sued a 12 year old girl, and thought the Sony rootkit fiasco was no big deal.

The RIAA has once again scored very highly on the unintentional comedy scale. "Comedy" might be the wrong word actually. Feel free to substitute your own. One of their representatives actually said the following to a college student: “In fact, the RIAA has been known to suggest that students drop out of college or go to community college in order to be able to afford settlements.”

That copy of Gold Digger better have been worth it.
