RIAA, Google’s Next Buddy?
« on: August 22, 2010, 08:34:34 am »

Just recently we reported about Google’s newly adopted stance towards net neutrality which did raise some heavy controversy. But how could have the RIAA miss out on any attempt to choke net neutrality?

With the hope of eradicating file sharing at the level of telcos and ISPs always vivid the organization wrote a letter to Google CEO Eric Schmidt in search of an anti-net neutrality commando.

"The music community we represent believes it is vital that any Internet policy initiative permit and encourage ISPs and other intermediaries to take measures to deter unlawful activity such as copyright infringement and child pornography," says the letter.

RIAA’s use of child pornography as an excuse to push forward with its crusade against file sharing and net neutrality has become almost…obscene. As long as telcos and ISPs are obeying net neutrality laws as they are, they will not be able to mess with people's file sharing habits.

Another disguise used by RIAA in its attempt to impose its views on file sharing is that of a fighter for order and moral values, all endangered by this chaos the internet tends to become if not subjected to (its) control.

"We all share the goal of a robust Internet that is highly accessible, secure and safe for individuals and commerce. An Internet predicated on order, rather than chaos, facilitates achievement of this goal," the letter continues.

There's nothing like jumping on the band wagon.  8)

I may be well off the mark but the RIAA has picked an interesting bed fellow considering the amount of copyrighted material harvested and stored on google's servers.

Also considering that one of the most widely known methods of getting around a subscription or signup requirement is to hit that trusty 'cached' hyperlink on the google search results.

"The music community we represent.......... believes it is vital that any Internet policy...

Would love to see those two statements proven...

RIAA only represents themselves, I think...

And how can they be sure of others' beliefs?
What you think is important is rarely urgent
But what you think is Urgent is rarely important

Just remember that...
