RIAA Petitions

Currently there are two petitions going on with regards to the RIAA:

First the EFF is asking people to sign a petition to be sent to Congress to ask them to do something about the RIAA’s heavy handed tactics towards children, parents and the elderly.

The second, is the RIAA petitioning some federal judges to reduce the royalty payments they make to artists. Apparently, while they’re filing lawsuits against 12 year olds for stealing Brittney Spears from file sharing sites, the RIAA wants to lower Brittney’s royalty payments for legal downloads.

While I guess “something is better then nothing”, it sure seems rather hypocritical don’t ya think?
