Blogcritics: Interview With Cary Sherman, President of the RIAA
They asked my question first, and this was Cary's response:
Actually, we're not lobbying for copy-restriction technologies. We do want
our companies to be able to use copy protection technology on their CDs,
however, so that they can discourage unlimited copying and distribution on
Hilary Rosen (apparently president of RIAA then) said in March
The introduction of the 'Consumer Broadband Act' sends an unmistakable
signal about the importance of protecting digital music and other
content from piracy. Without stringent protections, online piracy will
continue to proliferate and spin further out of control.
So, did they stop lobbying recently, or is Cary lying?
