The RIAA Understands profit.
According to Recording Industry vs The People, in 2008 the RIAA spent 16 million dollars to recover only $391,000, and that as far as their efforts go, 2008 was practically a banner year.
These bastards should handle the US Treasury, for crap’s sake.
Does the RIAA think it’s 1999, and people still buy the “lose money per transaction, make it up on volume” business model? Seriously, if I were to look up the board of directors for the RIAA, I bet they’ll all be Underpants Gnomes.
