    I have never seen an industry try so hard to put themselves out of business (well, maybe with the exception of the automotive industry).

    Um.....so what would happen to the recording industry if radio decided stop playing songs? I know a far stretch, but the answer is there.

    According to the article their sales would increase. :eek:

    Because, you know, that radio hurts their sales….the lobbyist said so and they wouldn’t lie to Congress. :rolleyes:

    It so boggles the mind.

    Why can't the recording industry just come into the 21st century and figure out a business model that includes the internet.

    No we'll just make stuff up and extort money from everyone we can. :rolleyes:

    so if they don't play music on the radio, what are we going to listen to? Michelle Norris and Howard Stern?

    The best part? The artists are overwhelmingly against this sort of thing. They want their songs on the radio. But as far as the RIAA is concerned the artists have as much say in the business as an ear of corn does in the agriculture industry.
