This is just getting too weird.....

Industry Group Pays Child's RIAA Fine

Pick pirates more carefully, peer-to-peer organization tells music labels.

P2P United, a newly formed industry trade association, says it will pay the $2000 fine imposed on 12-year-old Brianna LaHara by the recording industry for illegally downloading music from the Internet.

The executive director of the Washington, D.C.-based P2P United, Adam Eisgrau, says the RIAA should pick on someone its own size, not a little girl who downloaded songs like "If You're Happy and You Know It, Clap Your Hands."

He is also calling on the RIAA to abandon its campaign and stop going after children and grandparents--one RIAA target is a 71-year-old grandfather.

Why on earth go after the minority groups like minors or old people on retirement funds... thats only going to work against them !!! The whole system needs to be rethought. What do you think??
