INDIES BAND TOGETHER: If the RIAA have a moment to think away from trying to keep their website online - because if it's not there to prick our consciences, we might start going into shops to steal CDS - they've got a new threat, as American independent labels are forming their own trade association, which could form quite a sizeable and vocal group offering a counterpoint to the major label's body. Representing about one-fifth of the total music industry, and 30 per cent of online sales, they'll be large enough to offer a credible, alternative voice to that of the RIAA. If nothing else, it'll stop the RIAA carrying on like they're the only voice of music.
