I’m nuts about Mark Cuban.
And not only because he hates the RIAA. But that’s reason enough.
Says Mark: “The RIAA can no longer claim that students who are downloading music are costing them thousands of dollars each. They can’t claim much of anything actually. In essence, Yahoo just turned possession of a controlled music substance into a misdemeanor. Payable by a $5 per month fine.”
Two points: First, if you’re not against the RIAA suing your listeners you’re not fighting for your listeners. Second, when unlimited downloads cost you $5 per month, that’s virtually “free.”
And “free”, you’ll remember, is one of the big “advantages” of Radio.
