Why are they doing this: One day, one of the money hungry bastards couldn't get his mansion's floor platinum plated and had to settle for gold. At the time file sharing was the exact excuse they needed. Little do they know of the other options avaible. But I'm not a narc so I won't mention them.
Why are they being bashed: Lets get something straight, bird. Sure you can pirate music on a P2P program. But put lets it this way and say "a file sharing program is marvelous thing, where people can distribute their songs, poetry, pictures and videos and open people up to new things and ideas." Now is it so bad? Well that’s just what a file sharing program is, just not on that scale. The only P2P programs the RIAA knows about is Kazaa, eMULE and bittorrent (which is a torrent). Not to mention they are corrupt, the government caters to them, and they ruin children's lives. If anything file sharing has opened me up to bands, which I wouldn’t have bought the CDs anyways. Pink Floyd, Linkin Park, Weird Al and more over time; since Napster came out, and then we had Metalica who sold out
What is being done: Nothing really, just us citizens struggling.
