You say you want a revolution

How’s this for a change: a bit of heartening news regarding the music business. A bunch of musicians, including heavy hitters Elton John, Madonna, No Doubt, and Eric Clapton, are going up against the RIAA in hopes of leveling the playing field for artists in the music industry. It’s nice to see some big names speaking out against the RIAA, especially since of all the artists out there, they have the most to lose. Big-name artists actually make money in the current system, whereas small artists generally don’t…Madonna could keep her mouth shut and continue raking in the dough.
