    Independent record labels and their attempt to remove their labels from RIAA control

    A number of independent record labels want to sever their ties with the Recording Industry Association of America. The problem is, they never became members of the association in the first place. The record labels say they were wrongly listed as members on the RIAA Web site. Joel Rose of member station WHYY reports.

    Erin Kelly-Burkett started Fat Wreck Chords in the late 1980s . . . 

    I am unable to bring up the rest of this transcript because 1) I couldn't type as fast as I heard the report on the radio this morning and 2) I do not wish to pay for an online transcript from here: Purchase an online transcript (approx. 1157 words) of this story

    Basically this report states that the RIAA have been putting the names of labels that are in no way associated with them, on their list of RIAA Supportive labels.
    This list can be found here:
    http://www.riaa.com/about/members/default.asp

    You can listen to the full audio report for free with WMP or RealAudio by clicking here:

    I think you missed the other news broadcast saying that the RIAA is changing their name to R.A.P.E. I forget what it stands for though.

    Well it seems from this audio report that they don't have as many labels as they list supporting them.

    They want to seem bigger than they are?

    Or just make it seem like more labels are on their side...

    hehe... I think as I read there only some very big labels like sony, bmg... in RIAA and all the small labels have not yet a chance, some may probably share as well.

    Yes, they use those as additional citings of copyright violations for purposes of 'severity of the crime'... which "entitles" them to (potentially) greater damages amounts or rather a bigger reward settlement.
