Re: It don't mean a thing....

The music industry we are referring to here is those that are the distributors of the content providers which are the musicians themselves.

You can think of a cow as a musician, but the one who packages the milk, cleans and purifies it for you to drink safely is the distributor/RIAA.

A.k.a

Sony BMG
Warner Bros
Ultra Records

and so forth.

Also any audience is manipulated, because I am sure one of the most notorious (Sony BMG) popped that question. They know people download music illegally, they just don't know how to stop it. They where expecting a safe ground of a few of those who will go "Yeah I do! WOOO!" while the rest of the audience remained quiet.

They cannot find someone that agrees with their point of view. So to even bring up "it's illegal and wrong" discussion was irrelevant.

We can change the metaphor if you want, but I am trying to make my message as clear as glass.

I'd prefer to do without the metaphors altogether.

The music industry includes a lot of honorable professions. I don't like being lumped together with the Big Three record labels when my involvement in the music industry has nothing whatsoever to do with the production of records (that includes CD and other media as well). Call a spade a spade, but leave the clubs, hearts and diamonds out of it.

Again maybe you know something or how things work better than I do on the matter but the overall picture and aura given out by the music industry is not a good one.

With all due respect, you might want to examine your own actions, or lack thereof, when handing out blame. The recording industry (the "RI" in RIAA) is a separate entity from the music industry. Not all music is recorded, and not all recordings are music. In fact, spoken voice recordings outnumber musical recordings, both in number and total length.

During the Vietnam War, America's enemies were varied and cunning. However this didn't justify indiscriminate retaliation, like the My Lai massacre. Fortunately the RIAA shenanigans are a far cry from the death and destruction of warfare, but the same principles apply. So if you don't know who is friend or foe, it's best to hold your tongue until you do.
