RIAA Layoffs ‘Bloodbath’ May Be the Beginning of the End for the Evil Organization
(Adam Frucci, Gizmodo, 2 Mar 2009)

The RIAA is currently laying off dozens of employees in what’s been described as a “bloodbath” at the lawsuit-happy organization. Could this be the end of the RIAA?

Hypebot, the site that reported the layoffs, says that the “RIAA as you know it is probably history by Tuesday.” And yes, that means tomorrow. Offices are closing and over 100 people are being shown the door, so this is clearly a serious move.

So what will happen to the RIAA? It’ll probably merge with the IFPI, the European organization currently ineptly suing The Pirate Bay. But really, it’s only a matter of time before that organization bites the dust as well.
