From The Mac Observer - BBC Criticizes RIAA's Attacks On Consumers. Thank god for the BBC! Finally an organization with an internationally respected reputation steps up and calls the RIAA on the carpet. The BBC says that the RIAA is not worrying about the major source of piracy is not American p2p filesharers, but domestic and international large-scale duplication efforts by organized crime. This summary of the BBC article points out that the BBC criticizes the RIAA for other things, as well, such as a decline in album releases and a decline in single releases, as well - it is difficult to claim domestic piracy as a major reason for losses when the product offerings themselves are being cut by a quarter.
