RIAA settles with 12-year-old girl

This item sets me off.

I sympathize somewhat with the RIAA in its desire to protect music copyrights, but not very much. What annoys me most is that the music the industry has published for decades has promoted all sorts of immoral behavior, from killing cops to adultery to - no doubt - theft. But now! Now that people are violating their copyrights, suddenly they're bastions of morality.

Well, even if they're hypocrites and brought a lot of their troubles upon themselves, that doesn't make it right to steal their music.
