Legal We always try to avoid politics like the plague here on OSNews, but sometimes, it's hard to avoid it. Take the case of Joel Tenenbaum, who could be liable for over 1 million USD if the Recording Industry Association of America gets its way. While many hoped for a change of pace when it comes to these matters, Barack Obama's Department of Justice has squarely sided with the RIAA.

Instead of railing incessantly about the RIAA and the new President, why not do something contructive, not to mention non-hypocritical, and enjoy the large collections of cool new music at Magnatune, where the artists get a 50% cut of any money you care to spend?

The music is far better than most of the popular crap that many seem to want a license to steal.

Want good music? Go to Magnatune. Want to reward the artists? Go to Magnatune. Want to hurt the RIAA? Go to Magnatune.

The solution is already here. And if you are not taking advantage of it you are still part of the problem. It's time to get with the program and become part of the solution.
