RIAA Confused Marketing with Piracy

A few days ago Twitter received a number of DMCA takedown notices. During taking according action, the service suspended the accounts of a few hip-hop bloggers. The reason for suspension was that the bloggers have promoted music tracks, which were offered by the labels themselves, but they gave download links to the content. Although such way of promoting new musicians isn’t anything new to people who know something about music and the entertainment industry, it seems the RIAA wasn’t in the list of the dedicated. In fact, it’s like sending a song to some radio station with the hope to get promoted, but the RIAA suddenly issues a take down order because the music is “free”!


There were eyebrows raised in regards to the takedowns, and Twitter provided a number of links to the media indicating the details of the takedown. It appeared that the RIAA was in fact the one sending out the takedown notices, as it signed “Job title: Online Anti-Piracy, RIAA.” Actually, everywhere else it said that the notices were from Universal Music, but sent out by the Recording Industry Association of America.

So, it looks like the mighty RIAA has no idea about what modern marketing is. By the way, it can be considered the least of the outfit’s problems since it’s pretty much in the dark what Universal Music is doing. For example, “The Dream” is mentioned in a few of those takedown notices, while one could ask who or what it is. It turns out that it’s Terius Youngdell Nash, one the most popular producers, musicians and artists of our days, working for Def Jam, a Universal Music affiliation. He’s responsible to giving the world such songs as Bieber’s “Baby” and Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”. Def Jam label mostly deals with hip-hop and urban music, and Terius Youngdell Nash can be considered the key moneymaking musicians out there. Now it becomes clear why the anti-piracy outfit acts like a headless chicken.

In addition, Terius owns a label called Radio Killa. If one visits its site, they can see words “THE NEW FREE ALBUM”, and a single click on the cover would allow you to download a .zip file with all of the tracks absolutely for free. Unfortunately, the RIAA’s reaction was that such downloading is illegal. Meanwhile, their position didn’t stop a songwriter from encouraging site visitors to download the album while joking about attorneys who might force him to stop giving out music for free.

fusseltier avatarwho and what gives the RIAA the right to tell people they can not make music and give it away for free?
its all republicans undying support for corporations over peoples rights, even if a corporation is 100% wrong. the people just keep losing more and more rights in america and will get worse if the government keeps letting corporations walk all over everyones rights.
unfortunately bush passed a law giving corporations the same rights as an individual, so now the playing field is not level anymore since corporations have more money and resources than an individual does.
