    That's like saying that people shouldn't eat at McDonalds because the company gets all the money and the employees get minimum wage. Your argument is just silly.

    Like the employees of McDonalds, artists agree to work under the terms (and pay) of their employment; in this case, a record contract through their respective record labels. No one is getting the proverbial shaft... at least not without prior knowledge of it.

    okay folks. i understand but the mcdonald's analogy is a bad one. first, not everyone can make the music to have a contract thru their record label. the buisness is unfair

    anyone can be a mccdonald's employee. with the music trade, a special skill is required.

    I also think that the RIAA has always been a greedy organization.
    They place themselves between the thing that moves emotions (music) just to get the money out of it.

    Trying to justify crime is just stupid, even if you are actually doing it.

    It's a business.

    The RIAA represents the major record labels in the USA. Those are the ones who are profiting from album sales. They are in business to make money just like everyone else. They aren't a predatory business or even close to it.

    If their clients are successful, everyone involved makes a lot of money.
