"Too bad, however, that the RIAA isn’t sharing any of the ‘damages’ with the artists, to reward them. Despite presenting thousands of artists as victims in the case, none of them are expected to see any of the settlement money in their bank accounts anytime soon.

 

RIAA spokesman Jonathan Lamy previously told TorrentFreak that the ‘damages’ accrued from piracy-related lawsuits will not go to any of the artists, but towards funding more anti-piracy campaigns. “Any funds recouped are re-invested into our ongoing education and anti-piracy programs,” he said."

 

Thats the way its always been with the RIAA & the Record labels. They never have and never really will care about the artists. Its all about the money for THEM. Hard to find any labels now days that actually care more about the artists and the fans.

Isn't everything in this world pretty much about the money?

I'm no fan of the RIAA but I'm trying to think of a situation where the owners, managers, bosses, controlling interests really give 2 shits about the people that make them money...other than it makes them money.

Reminds me of something George Carlin said:

 

"You know how I define the economic and social classes in this country? The upper class keeps all of the money, pays none of the taxes. The middle class pays all of the taxes, does all of the work. The poor are there... just to scare the shit out of the middle class! Keep 'em showing up at those jobs!"

Let's not spoil a good rant with facts, eh?

 

The fact is that at least in the United States, the top 5% of taxpayers pay 95% of the tax revenue the government collects.

 

On a PERCENTAGE basis, the rich pay lower than you or I due to the ceiling on SS contributions and the greater availability of tax shelters and writeoffs, but in terms of dollars paid into the government by econmic strata, it's not even close...

P.S. The RIAA can suck my left testicle.

Funding more anti-piracy? ha ha ha ha!! I wouldn't be suprised to find out its a fucking rackett! the riaa and the top guys of file sharing sites fire up the fucking P2P servers and give it about 5 years, of nonstop plugs and pushing and funding their own file sharing sites, until they garner enough sharers and investors to turn the table and file a lawsuite against them, the revenue that's been brought in by this time is there to be had by whichever side is awarded the lawsuit, then the top dogs split it down the middle,these fucking scum bag cocksucker riaa fucks are the bottom of the barrel, and yes most jobs do take most of the money by the bosses and fuck the litle workiing lemmings, but most jobs don't file million and billion dollar lawsuites on the merit of someone elses talent and win,totally fucking the actual workers that they used as examples to win the lawsuit, its okay, the bottoms falling out fast, and not for file sharing, they will NEVER!! I repeat NEVER!! even put a dent in file sharing, it will just go further underground then it is now! until they have no one to sue, cause they have no actual company running the sharing! what will they do? sue and shut down the entire internet? fuck enjoy now your pipe dream you greedy worthless fucking loads that shouldve been swallowed!

    • Lyric video for 'Return To Glory'.    
    • New album out November 22 through Lions Pride Music. From Lions Pride Music: Martin Perticone AKA “Perticone Underdog” is an artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina who’s been in the music industry since the age of 13, when he joined the band Fondo Blues as a lead singer and guitar player. Martin played in the Argentinean under circuits for more than 25 years but during the way also got to know many important people in the music industry that led him to become Tour Manager for artists like Eric Martin from Mr Big in 2007 or even being invited as a guest for Richie Kotzen Latin American Tour in 2008. Martin has also toured around Latin America, USA, Europe and Hong Kong as a hired gun for many different artists until he finally decided to put more efforts on his solo career. That’s how his long-time friend Edu Giardina (well-known artist in Latin America) would become his producer and mentor for his debut album “Underdog”. The mixture of AOR, Southern Rock and Country makes this album unique and different with amazing and powerful melodies all over the place. The album featured guests such as Eric Martin (Mr Big) and Edu Giardina and brings reminiscent from the late 80’s and 90’s but keeping the best of current sounds and trends too. Perticone’s solo career has just begun and in only 1 year from his launch he’s got many followers and fans in Europe, Asia and Latin America. “Stuff In The Basement” was recorded during pandemic times at RED Studios Buenos Aires and features an amazing line-up of musicians from all over the world. Edu Giardina and Guillermo Porro got involved, one more time, as the producers and band members for this new release taking the album to another level. It is plain to see the growth of Perticone Underdog as an artist on this new production by just listening to the opening track of the album “Blame it on Me”. There are, as usual, some country “pearls” and 90’s rock reminiscences all over. Stuff in the Basement will be released in 29 August 2022 by Lions Pride Music worldwide!   CD Tracklist: 01. Blame It On Me 02. End Of The Line 03. Name Without A Face 04. Save Me Tonight 05. Game For Fools 06. Waiting 07. Let's Get Lost Tonight 08. What Went Wrong (I Wonder) 09. When It Rains 10. Falling   Perticone Underdog is: Martin Perticone: Lead & Backing Vocals, Acoustic & Rhythm Guitar Edu Giardina: Backing Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Keys, Drums, Progamming Ezequias Aquino: Saxophone Guillermo Porro: Guitar Solo on „Name Without A Face“ Will Wilde: Harmonica on „Game Of Fools“ Emmanuel Lopez: Lead Guitar on „Let's Get Lost Tonight“ Lara Goi: Backing Vocals on „What Went Wrong“ Brad Harper: Pedal Steel Guitar on „When It Rains“   facebook
