Listen UP PEOPLE!
This post might be a little lengthy, but its WORTH the read. Im a law enforcement officer and I dont condone theft in anyway. Or is this REALLY theft? I have a SERIOUS problem with this RIAA crap thats going on. They want to go after file sharers but yet you can record these songs from the radio or tape tv shows and movies, but you never hear any suits on people doing that. Thats like saying its legal to sell pot just as long as you dont sell crack! I also have a SERIOUS problem with a little 12 year old girl being sued! In my book, your a TERRORIST for doing that! The definition of TERRORIST is as follows: The planned, organized use of fear to control someone. And the RIAA has stated the word "scare" in there whole media frenzy. So there you go...Like the old saying.."If the shoe fits".
PEOPLE, We have the POWER to STOP this! Its called the POWER OF BOYCOTT!
Lets quit saying we ARE going to do it! AND REALLY DO IT! Lets get a BIGGER media frenzy than the RIAA's lawsuits!
Lets see headlines like "THOUSANDS BOYCOTT MUSIC INDUSTRY AND RIAA"!
Or "RAPID DECLINE IN CD SALES GROWING DUE TO BOYCOTT"!
Or even BETTER! "MAJOR BOYCOTT CAUSES RIAA SUBMISSION"!
After hearing of this stuff and this lawsuit against a 12 year old as of RIGHT NOW I WILL NEVER BUY another CD again!! (cept CD/Rs).
But its gonna take more than me or just a handfull of people! If we BOYCOTT even just for say 6 months, it will KICK the feet out from under the RIAA and KICK them out HARD!
Lets turn the tables people and TURN UP THE HEAT ON THEM! I Emplore you to join me and others for the Boycott!
Without our purchases, they HAVE NO POWER!
They claim they've lost 31% in sales? Lets just add ANOTHER 31% or better yet MORE!
BELIEVE ME! IT WILL WAKE THEM UP!
This little innocent 12 year old girl will now have to pay a fine to the Terrorist group that will more than likely come out of her COLLEGE FUND or the CAR that she will buy to get to and from College.
We need to show the RIAA WHO THE REAL BOSSES ARE! IT'S US!
Please take it upon yourself that if you join this cause, Please be loyal to it!
Dont say "Yeah!" and then go out and buy a bunch of CD's this weekend!
For people that are SERIOUS about this! An would to make the above headlines a reality! Lets post a list on this forum of people that have started and are going to be loyal to this cause.....NO REAL names just user names! and the date you started your pledge NOT to buy anymore CD's....I WANT to be on this list so I will start out as #1. When others see this list and as it grows, It will definately ENCOURAGE others to join. Please help people! Not just Kazaa users...But tell your Friends, relatives, and coworkers! SPREAD this cause by WORD OF MOUTH, CHAT, EMAIL, or however you can. And please when you add your name to the list. Please repost it so others can see our progress. If we DO THIS people, we can WIN!
And also suing Grandparents??? 90% of those people live of Social Security and thats barely enough to make ends meet!
The RIAA and Music Industry just LOST me as a customer until THEY CHANGE!!!!
Suing CHILDREN OUT of their COLLEGE EDUCATION!!!!!
Here's MY NAME for the BOYCOTT LIST!
