RIAA setting sights on school funding

Every day tens, if not dozens, of albums are sold in record stores across America. And yet the average American musician represented by a major record label is forced to scrape by on only millions. Their only fault: Being born talented and with a marketable face. They are forced to criss-cross these United States in search of sustenance, peddling their wares hoping to provide for their backup dancers, many of which have never known the feel of a gold Jacuzzi filled with Dom Perignon or the simple pleasures of a personal jet. No one should have to settle for mere multi-platinum status. Won’t you help?

In recent years, the benevolent and wise executives at the Recording Industry Association of America have taken it upon themselves to combat the deterioration of the American entertainment industry’s luxury by taking the fight to the very doorstep of those who would stand in the way of such progress (read: your dorm room).

A recent provision of the Higher Education Opportunity Act, which among other things provides for greater access to federal education loans, protection against illegitimate diplomas and the support of underrepresented groups in American institutions of higher education, now enables the federal government to strip funding to universities who fail to take a proactive stance against illegal peer-to-peer file-sharing.

How desperate is that? It really shows just how pathetic the RIAA are getting when, to achieve their aims, they are prepared to let the removal of education funding be part of their plan. I find that totally disgusting.  8)

yes i agree its not just disgusting its also depriving young people the chance to further their chances in life,
we have to send children to school, now they want to remove the very thing that gives youngsters a start in life,

without a good education they could end up unemployed, on the streets, even turning to crime, possibly violent as well,
its appalling.

in UK we dont have home school, you either send them to school, or social services used to visit you with a warning of court action, im unsure if they still do as they are run by local council.

@ max and all uk parents;

http://home-ed.info/

the part about it being threatened seems to want to add some of the things that are required in the US... (registration and testing to name two... tho talking with the kids without the parents present is not something done here)

@ those around the globe who dont have kids; http://www.vhemt.org/
