Socio-Economic Protest! Who’s In?

So the guys over at Gizmodo are onto something. I read their blog pretty regularly – and they are pretty much anti-RIAA. For good reason. They have the money and the stupidity to block some great technological advances for purely skewed reasons.

Their latest endeavor? They want to be able to sue the establishment that provides the internet connection that allows someone to download stolen music. So, if I’m caught downloading Fantasia Barrino’s performance from last Thursday night on American Idol at a Starbuck’s – not only would I get sued, but Starbuck’s would as well.

Thier ignorance is only matched by their deep pockets. So the guys over at the Giz are suggesting a boycott/social protests experiment – which I’m into. Don’t buy any CDs/records/cassettes from any artist who is on an RIAA label in the month of March. Sound impossible? Get the full scoop from these guys – they’ve thought about it – and I’m ready to play.
