Groups attack RIAA videoComplete article.
p2pnet.net News:- For years p2pnet has been criticizing spurious entertainment and software cartel pseudo-educational programs which attempt not merely to implant false standards, but also outright lies, into the heads of children around the world.
Now a number of public interest organizations have in a joint statement vigorously attacked Campus Downloading, a Big Four Oranized Music video travesty fronted by EDUCAUSE vp Mark Luker and the Big Four's RIAA.
An appallingly blatant example of pure corporate music industry mis- and disinformation "baloney," it purports to 'instruct' students about copyright law.
A press release of the Consumer Electronics Association, expressing its view and that of the Computer & Communications Industry Association, Public Knowledge, and the Home Recording Rights Coalition, attacking the RIAA video as "Baloney", is set forth in full here:
A word to college students who are on the receiving end of this DVD: never take legal advice from anyone except your lawyer. The RIAA is not your lawyer.
