The priority challenged RIAA has now decided that those bad YouTube videos of teenagers lip synching their favorite songs is somehow a business plan for record labels.
Project Opus reports that some YouTube users have reportedly received cease and desist letters from the RIAA, demanding that their amateur videos be taken down.
Here’s a news flash RIAA. These kids are not ever going to get a freaking synch license so they can lip synch and make funny videos, some of which are the best possible viral marketing for a song. All you are accomplishing by harassing these kids is to once again look greedy and clueless. That and nipping some good marketing in the bud.
It would be so nice if the record label cartel would stop trying to turn back the clock and embrace the technology that is going to thrive with or without them.
