PAUL BOUTIN WRITES that the RIAA's amnesty deal is bogus. No surprise.
As Ken Layne wrote last year:
What happens when an industry mistreats its customers and its suppliers? When 8,999 of 9,000 audits show shoddy accounting practices? When a core business is bungled and the marketplace shrugs and moves on? When scandals and greed lead to massive layoffs and massive disgust?
The answer: it sues its customers.
