RIAA - Who are the Pirates?
Kelly McNeill writes "When you purchase music, are you purchasing a right to music and physical media, or are you merely purchasing a license to play the music? The recording industry says that our dollars only go towards a license. If that's the case, why haven't we been given the opportunity to transfer this license to a new container format? The recording industry appears to be selling us the disadvantages of music and licenses while retaining the benefits for itself."
