Apparently the RIAA is done fighting people who have downloaded music illegally, and are now partnered in setting up a new music service called Qtrax. It's a new kind of P2P software, and there are an alleged 25,000,000 songs you can now download and keep PERMANENTLY - LEGALLY - and best of all, for FREE. The software will be available to download after midnight tonight.

It looks like a bunch of record labels backed out, so they had to can the idea.

My question is, what fucking idiot at the RIAA decided to start up a project like that without asking the labels first?

Perhaps that was the plan? They now get to pretend that they had this magnanimous idea to bring music to the poor huddled masses, a gesture of peace, and the labels killed it.

Good point. And I wouldn't put it past them.
