The Age of Reason, revisited, I say. Open Studios is determined to help
build and operate community-based recording studios in every community
in the U.S. Every community can provide free recording services to their
local residents. Now, couple that with last year's reports of increased
revenues for music stores [ask yourself what led to that], and you have
the makings of a truly revolutionary response to the RIAA, in short
order. How about it? Any volunteers willing to git the show on the
road in your community, just send an email. All our services are free.
It's time for the RIAA to leave, and take their DMCA with them.
