RIAA, piracy, Gnutella - whatever dude
Some of the technology and digital press have picked up on a report that shows musicians not having the same missionary zeal as the recording industry to stamp out file sharing. You can read the original report here.
A number of artists like rap rebel Chuck D have come out in favour of the technology saying that the business needs to change rather than trying to hold back the technological tide, the survey shows that most of the artists surveyed are neutral to positive in the opinions on file sharing. I guess it means the RIAA will be able to bring out Metallica and er some other dudes to act as industry mouthpieces on their behalf.
