And that's exactly the point.  I hate to continue this OT thread but../

The RIAA is a decoy.  Their sole purpose is to fight for the labels and take
the bullets.  The RIAA has a budget in the tens of millions of dollars and
when they need more they will get it.

Blackholing the RIAA and hating them is pointless, that is what they are
there for.  Blackholing them accomplishes nothing.
If you want to cause change you need to go after the labels.  The labels are
the member organizations which fund the RIAA.  It's the labels who need to
be stopped, the RIAA is just their puppet and shield.
