'Goldsmith thinks the industry's take-no-prisoners strategy may backfire. "They're pissing off the artists," he said. "If they piss off online radio too, what's to prevent a system that doesn't involve the recording industry at all? They're encouraging the development of an alternative relationship between producers and radio stations." '

why, yes, yes they are. which would be a fine thing, in my opinion.

Very fine, indeed! :-) There will be a whole group of people going on with creating and enjoying music as if 'the industry' itself didn't even exist. *gasp* Sounds good to me!
