RIAA = Recording Industry Artists of America I believe.

They’re the nazi-eqsue music ‘trade association’ that makes sure americans pay $18 for new CDs, can never use any type of file-sharing software legally, and most recently sell defective CDs that have crackles and pops when extracted to MP3s. I believe they’re funded by the 6 major labels (Sony, Universal, AOL/WB, etc..). The RIAA is who went after Napster, MP3.com, Gnutella, and so forth.

I actually have a cease-and-desist letter from the RIAA circa 1998. They were so concerned about people trading analog copies (tapes!) of live concerts. It’s really unfortunate that they spent a whole year trying to threaten people to stop *trading* things that could never be purchased in a store. Heads up their asses as usual…
