It turns out that the artists don't really need more money from the public: just the studios:
Sure, the RIAA hasn't exactly been on the good side of the general public since, oh, this century began, but it sure isn't doing itself any favors with this latest hint of persuasion. While the agency has fought grandmothers, children, and cash-strapped citizens quite vigorously to "ensure artists are getting due payment," it has seemingly opened up a chink in its own armor by pleading with judges to "lower artist royalties."
Maybe Bronfman needs to buy a new house or something, now that he's given his own kids a "good talking to" about piracy.
