This March: Boycott the RIAA

Alright, we've been following the RIAA's increasingly frequent
affronts to privacy and free speech lately, and it's about time we stopped
merely bitching and moaning and did something about it. The RIAA has the power
to shift public policy and to alter the direction of technology and the Internet
for one reason and one reason alone: it's totally loaded. Without their millions
of dollars to throw at lawyers, the RIAA is toothless. They get their money from
us, the consumers, and if we don't like the way they're behaving, we can let
them know with our wallets.
With that in mind, Gizmodo is declaring the month
of March Boycott the RIAA month. We want to get the word out to as many people
as humanly possible that we can all send a message by refusing to buy any album
put out by an RIAA label. Am I saying you should start pirating music? Not at
all. You can continue to support the artists you enjoy and respect in a number
of ways.
