The artist's side of RIAA and file sharing

George has a post I really dig that outlines the thought pattern of the professional musician, or at least this one, about file sharing and the all-seeing-all-knowing RIAA.

I hate to spoil the ending for you, but I have to. It's beautific:

"I am going to analyze in depth how pop music and its machinery have worked...awww forget it. I don't have time for this crusade! I just want to make some music and make enough of a living to keep the lights on. When you guys figure it out, let ME know. I'm going to go practice...."

It's a good thing I'm married to him, because if I were reading him for the first time, I think I would have just fallen in love.
