Who music ‘theft’ hurts — RIAA

bootThe organized music gang’s RIAA says,

“While downloading one song may not feel that serious of a crime, the accumulative impact of millions of songs downloaded illegally – and without any compensation to all the people who helped to create that song and bring it to fans – is devastating.

It goes on to quote a’study’ by the Institute for Policy Innovation  as “credible,” saying  the ‘study’  puts the the “ annual harm at $12.5 billion dollars in losses to the US economy as well as more than 70,000 lost jobs and $2 billion in lost wages to American workers,”.

Wow!
