record label against RIAA lawsuits

An important Canadian record label, Nettwerk Music Group, has decided to join a RIAA lawsuit against a 15 year old Texan – on the side of the defendant.

Quote from Michael Geist’s excellent blog:

Nettwerk CEO Terry McBride says:

“Suing music fans is not the solution, it’s the problem. Litigation is not ‘artist development.’ Litigation is a deterrent to creativity and passion and it is hurting the business I love. The current actions of the RIAA are not in my artists’ best interests.”

Fascinating. Here’s a record label that is worthy of support! It’s about time, too, that someone stands up to those RIAA clowns – it’s their actions that are hurting artists, not filesharing.
