According to the Free Software Foundation
the first ever major anti-digital restrictions managment protest were held at a Microsoft conferance. Protesters wore hazmat suits and passed out fliers. Hopefully, this will help to encourage the downfall of digital restrictions managment. That, and the fact that the RIAA may be entirly obsolet. In the past, the RIAA was an organization dedicated to the cause of bitching about how much they lost each year to people copying cassets and to taking money from musicians. Now, legitimate, DRM free sites like e-music allow for artist to bypass the RIAA and sell songs that work on the iPod or any other MP3 player. Indie artist can make money and e-music makes money and the consumer gets tunes. Also, the RIAA has said that they cannot compete with filesharing. This is true, the RIAA
can't, but artist can. The RIAA will die, but the music will prosper. Artist will begin selling music via their own sites or through their own initiative. They will sell for a low price, but make all of the profits (when you pay $1 for an iTunes track, about 55 cents goes to the RIAA, 30 cents or so goes to Apple Computing, and a mere 15 cents goes to the artist).
