How the Sydlexia Community Feels About the RIAA
||I think it is awesome how the RIAA is suing all of those bastards who steal music. Fuck normal people! Long live Lars Ulrich!!! What I love the most about the RIAA is how smart they are. They are able to sue the people who share music from bands they represent while at the same time those artists are becoming more famous due to additional circulation, causing more people to share and be targets for being sued. I wish I was smart enough to make a money making scheme like this.|| |
