And you may find yourself…getting bitched at by the RIAA

The Lord Almighty, sometimes known as David Byrne, has been slapped with a warning by those heathen RIAA fools for playing more than 4 Missy tracks within a certain amount of time. From his wicked site:
… they may have confused streaming with downloading — in the same way that people often confuse downloading with file sharing. They are afraid that even if it's not downloadable somehow if a fan knows there will be 3 Missy songs at a given time they can prepare their gear and tape them. The assumption being that sale is lost.

Is there a higher licensing fee I could pay to allow me to do this? (I currently pay a statutory fee to stream this stuff.) Is there a reason a radio station can play Springsteen ‘round the clock but I can’t stream Missy Elliot? Answer: You CAN pay for this, Dave. However, you would have to license every song separately, and pay for each one too, instead of as a lump sum, as you do now.
Rot in commercial hell with your black hearts, you RIAA dementors. I would check out the Missy playlist, it’s good shit. His radio is no longer streaming so I would also give out massive wails while reading November’s menu. Cheryl Lynn, Rick James, Sheila E., Laid Back, Commodores, Indeep, both Jermaines (Jackson/Stewart), and MUTHERFECKING CAMEO to name a few.

How about another picture to show him we love him no matter what the RIAA say?

dunno, shit might change with bill c-60. Will make it illegal to share folders with copyrighted music, will allow ISPs to give out names, numbers, addresses to anyone incl. riaa.

the only way to avoid getting this ridiculous bill to pass is by continuously having federal elections. sooooo, i guess we're prolly safe for a couple of years...

Im not worried about that shit at all. Its not even remotely a priority for the Liberals, they have soooo many other people to appease before they pass this through. The lobbyists are hardly at the top of the list. If the NDP knows whats good for them they will play this up, tho they still wont have my vote. Muhahaha. Im going green or Libertarian if there is a candidate around my hood.

Thankfully those lobbyists dont have half the pull in Canada that they do in the states.

hi, i held the original "fat suit" in my arms and licked it, in cleveland ohio summer 2004, before locals dragged me by my keister plum OUT of the rock and roll hall of fame.

i think i played every bside from every record david byrne ever made on my radio show...

and "stop making sense" is the only movie in theatres i've ever been on my feet for the entire duration, dancing. it's my favorite cinema experience, and it's also the only movie i've gone to see where more than half the crowd walked out after the first fifteen minutes, which just goes to prove, that most people are crazy. or just stoopid.


ps- i'm flat broke, so can i take a raincheck on brunch til next sat? i-n-t-e-r-n-e-t, tic tic tic, i laaaahve you,
s
ps- those word verifications are tough nuts to crack! faaahck
