Group puts Label On CDs in Walmart putting RIAA Down

Quote:
Most people don't know it, but when you pay for major label music you're supporting some pretty nasty stuff. We think it boils down to two main points:

1) The major labels pay radio stations to play their songs. This is sketchy in itself--shouldn't the music on the radio just be the best stuff? But the worst part is it means other labels are locked out of radio. If musicians don't sign an exploitative contract with one of the majors, they don't get on the radio.

2) This fall the major labels starting suing fans. So far, they've sued over 300 people, mostly working families with young children. And they say the suits will continue indefinitely. Whatever you think about filesharing, it's just not okay for giant corporations to sue people with kids, living paycheck to paycheck, who can't afford a defense. The lawsuits are literally pushing families into bankruptcy.

RIAA Radar (riaaradar.com) is a great tool that can tell you whether a CD is put out by an RIAA label. It helps you avoid supporting the RIAA when you buy music. Now, Downhill Battle and RIAA Radar have teamed up to get the word out in stores, but we need you to make it happen. Changing the music industry isn't a dream anymore, the major labels are on the ropes and we have a chance to get rid of them.

Re: Group puts Label On CDs in Walmart putting RIAA Down

Yeah it's all true, a friend of mine works as an assistant down at the radio station where she talks calls from requests and answers questions. She said when people ask for requests on the radio, if the song isn't coming up in the line up of songs they were PAID TO PLAY, they won't play it.

What else do you get when you work in Southern California........... everything's corrupt man Except satellite radios of course, you can request whatever and they'll play it just fine.
