So Who’s Interests DO You Represent??

There is something deeply rotten here.  Bad enough that the RIAA, in its desperate death throes, is suing its customers (see earlier post) but it would appear that they cannot even pass the monies collected to the artists on whose behalf they purport to act.

It is long past time that everyone realised that the "Music Industry" is not the sum of publicly listed companies who comprise the RIAA and similar bodies.  They are simply the outmoded logistics arm.  The real Music Industry is the sum of a myriad artists who actually create the music; much less visible from a financial/economic perspective.  The music will win through as long as there is an audience to connect with it.  All we are seeing is the inelegant death of a delivery arm.
