RE: Free Music

>Metallica or Britney Spears (2 of the most traded

Haha, that's another reason why I support the free music cause. Hopefully, 
when people realize that Metallica and Britney Spears albums are now 
with about 80% filler to make a full CD, they'll start to look for artists 
who make "art" rather than "commodity for sale".

I remember hearing somewhere that a short while ago, the RIAA was actually 
going to try to start charging radio stations for playing music by 
RIAA-involved artists. After all, the radio stations were profiting off of 
other peoples' art and the "Artists" (Record execs) weren't making one red 
cent from radio airplay.

I was crossing my fingers and hoping that they'd actually do it. That way, 
independent musicians (who still have to earn their fan base) could have 
offered their music to radios for "free", thereby destroying the music 
industry as we know it.
