Simply, a fucked up organisation. Those litigious bastards don't give musicians a single cent for each copy of their CDs sold, and with MP3s becoming a more and more popular format each day, now they're even suing the musicians for posting their own sodding MP3s on the net, just for the sake of making money by the billions and billions. Seriously, how fucked up is that? Piracy and MP3 actually help musicians get recognised, and as I'm a musician I should know this. But, as usual, the RIAA doesn't give a shit.
The RIAA is just another corporate-whore making puppets out of politians. Now that the lawsuit cases and policies made their popularity plunge down, I guess they've worked hard enough just to shoot themselves in the foot. LOL
An idea that worked out on paper, but failed miserably in practice. It actually might've worked quite well if Joseph Stalin didn't turn himself into an all-controlling despot.
Also a rarely understood economical system, partly because of capitalist governments during the Cold War telling people that it's wrong, and partly 'cos most people can't stand reading ten words of Marx's writing.
Communism in its essence consists of a classless society with an equalised economy. And no, I'm not defending or supporting it, I'm just posting my observations of it.
