GREEDY, GREEDY, GREEDY, GREEDY: It seems that the RIAA and its members just can't resist squeezing more money from the consumers (that's us), and, hey, if golden-egg laying geese get slaughtered as a result, that's business, yeah? The big five labels are forcing a25 per cent price increase on Apple for songs on iTunes. Now, it's true they wanted the price to rise to USD2.99 per song, but even so - USD1.25 for a single track, which doesn't require any packaging, distribution or storage? They've got to be kidding.

In effect, the RIAA are pricing legal downloading out the market. You can vote with your peer to peer networks.
