Would you work for the RIAA/MPAA?
« on: June 19, 2007, 03:10:19 PM »
I thought of this after seeing that "free music" thread.

Considering that many of us may or may not have allegedly downloaded/copied music and movies from owned or unowned sources, and that some of us may or may not have upwards of over 20-50 GB worth of mp3s, mpegs, avis etc., would you consider working for the RIAA/MPAA and pursue the digital pirate and burglar of IP who is typically a poor college student?

How much they payin'?
Happy colored marbles that are rolling in my head
I put 'em back in the jacket of the one I love
Carry that velvet sack full of pretty colored marbles
And I'll ask you for 'em back, when I'm ready and done

Even better, I'd do it if I got paid in free music downloads.

$1.5 million per year, in the form of a company check.

The catch:  They retain all copyrights to the check, so you can never cash it.
I don't want to do it if it hurts or if it makes you get all sticky.

I would work for the RIAA only to destroy it from within or perhaps to open their eyes to an alternative business strategy.

We'll probably get sued just for posting in this thread.   :'(
