Ready, Aim, Backfire! - No one should be surprised that the RIAA's wave of lawsuits has ended up targeting some unlikely defendants -- nor that media coverage of this idiocy will be universally sympathetic to the group's "victims." Twelve year-olds, seventy-one year olds -- major offenders, my ass. I think we can view the world's fastest legal settlement reported today as an admission of mistake by the record industry. Moreover, some members of the RIAA are already taking the correct course to dealing with digital swapping -- lowering prices. At least Universal gets it. The RIAA should watch and learn.
