RIAA’s top 25 Pirating Colleges

It seems the RIAA doesn’t want to do anything but make people angrier and angrier. Now they have posted a list of the top 25 Colleges that pirate, well at least those that pirate and get caught doing it. This is just one more thing to make you think, hmm, why aren’t they making it easy enough for people to listen to the music they want to cheaply, then people wouldn’t pirate because if it is easier to pirate then it is to legally buy music and do with it whatever you want (similar to a CD with less cost) then people will do it. And don’t even get me started because then I will go off on a tangent on how much they say the music that is pirated is worth. Why can’t they just make the people pay $15 for every month that they have pirated or listened to pirated music and then make them buy a Zune. Wouldn’t that make everything better?

  1. That was an excellent solution. Being a college student I hate spending extra money, but I would spend it to avoid lawsuits. It would be even better if it could be an optional bill that could be billed through your school account. Hopefully such ideas will spread.
