RIAA copyright education contradictory

Just so Canadians won't think it is only Access Copyright that gets the law wrong when trying to "educate" people about Copyright, this CNET news.com article discusses some of the flaws in an RIAA campaign.

As with Captain Copyright there is a disrespect for authors rights by suggesting that these intermediaries are the only options available to authors, and that alternatives should be presumed illegal. This is not "education" about the law, but lobbying to try to protect their legacy business models in the face of growing competition. The more I see this level of misinformation the more I believe these intermediaries feel that people learning the truth would not allow their way of doing business to have a future.
