RIAA's spokeman responds to Billboard:
"It's up to individual copyright owners to decide how their works should be distributed," says a spokesperson for the Recording Industry Assn. of America. "Those who choose an MP3 blog to boost attention -- that is their choice, because they're the ones making the decision, rather than some third-party profiteer deciding for them. In terms of piracy, it's an issue we're monitoring, and we could decide at any time to make this an enforcement priority."Translation: We realize that the recording industry sees this development as an alternative means to market their product. Our hands are full with all the other lawsuits we have initiated against peer-to-peer users. We reserve the right to go after them if the industry sees fit.
