Is the tide changing?

Yesterday, Nettwerk Music Group announced that they would join in one of the many RIAA lawsuits started by the RIAA. Since one of the songs listed in the case was an artist represented by Nettwerk, we should have expected them to join the side of the plaintiff, the RIAA, via the RIAA presence in Canada: CRIA (self-appointed defender of Canadian artists). In a beautiful reversal, Nettwerk has stepped up to cover the costs of the defendant.

"The current actions of the RIAA are not in my artists' best interests". Thank you Mr. McBride! It is exactly this sort of action that is needed to demonstrate the true facts in this issue to our lawmakers.
