RIAA IS "SILLY ... LAUGHED AT ... IRRELEVANT"
A record executive says "Embrace File Sharing, Or Die ... It is one thing to be unsuccessful, it's one thing to argue a bad position, but it's quite another to be silly and laughed at, and that's where the RIAA has ended up. They appear to be totally irrelevant except as bagmen. It's more than just bad P.R., it's bad science."
