Default Sign This Petition

Dear Friends,

I have just read and signed the online petition:

"The RIAA and the Artists versus P2P File Sharing and the Loyal Consumer "

hosted on the web by PetitionOnline.com, the free online petition
service, at:

http://www.PetitionOnline.com/riaawar/

I personally agree with what this petition says, and I think you might
agree, too. If you can spare a moment, please take a look, and consider
signing yourself.

Best wishes,

Jake Wilkerson

Hey guys there are almost 18,000 people that have signed this come on lets get it into the millions! Even those who are not registered to this board if you see this sign up everyone!

I've moved this post to the Boycotts/Protests/Petitions/Rants forum, as this is not really off topic (despite it being about the RIAA, and not the MPAA).

Good post SKD_Tech.

However hopeless it may be, I signed up too.

True, but if a sizeable amount of signatures gets placed on the petition, say a few million. The RIAA will realise that a good amount of potential buyers are not happy, and may address the situation. Though, as you say, probably not!

The RIAA do know the numbers are in the millions.
They play stupid that they know what business model we want.
This way they can continue to whine to the law makers to change laws in thier favor.
Only solution is to stop funding them all together, and that isn't gonna happen. Too many ignorant people out there.

Thats why in a way I hope that the recording industry manages to make some of thier stupid ideas reality to proove to the ignorant people that thier business model is unacceptable, and thus WE should resort to endorsing other entertainment avenues.

Petitions only work if they are passed as LAW.
Maybe we consumers should be lobbying our concerns.
