RIAA: rip this, motherf&%@ers

Ok, it's bad enough that the Powers That Be deep-sixed Boston's own DJBC and the latest installment of his BEASTLES project. Now the big babies at the RIAA want you to buy both an ACTUAL copy of a CD and, if you want to put it on your iPod, a DIGTAL copy of the SAME FUCKING CD. This is insane -- even for an industry who's whole business model is based on selling people the same albums over and over and over again.

Oh, the RIAA is also really pissed that their parents never bought them a pony. Stupid parents ...

This newsflash brought to you by the Electronic Fronteir Foundation, which -- as Mike Miliard pointed out a couple weeks ago -- is fast becoming the new ACLU.
