Musicians Oppose RIAA, DRM, and Major Record Companies

For too long major record labels and the RIAA cheated musicians out of their money. In the 50s and before between payola and the way they cheated musicians qualified the major record labels as organized crime.

Then years later with new technology and the ability to share music in different ways, they come out and say they are the benevolent ones who are protecting the artists from the evil file sharers. They begin suing 12-year-olds to prove it.

They claim to speak for the artists. Ooops, Canadien artists have spoken up for themselves and it isn't what the RIAA, the major record labels, and their lawyers wanted to hear.

CMCC Members: Barenaked Ladies, Avril Lavigne, Sarah McLachlan, Chantal Kreviazuk, Sum 41, Stars, Raine Maida (Our Lady Peace), Dave Bidini (Rheostatics), Billy Talent, John K. Samson (Weakerthans), Broken Social Scene, Sloan, Andrew Cash and Bob Wiseman (Co-founder Blue Rodeo) all form a coalition against the copyright lawsuits and DRM.

Canadian musicians?

What are there, maybe 1 or 2 that actually have any talent?

Just buy them all up like Celine Dion and install them in some vegas nite club.

Problem solved.
