March: Boycott the RIAA Month

From Gizmodo: (link to full post)

“In case you missed it, last Friday we declared the month of March Boycott the RIAA Month. We’ve gotten sick and tired of always seeing the RIAA pulling deplorable moves and decided it was time for us to do something about it. We’re kicking the month off with this, our manifesto. We want to be absolutely clear about what this fight is about and why it’s so important. This is an overview of what the RIAA does, why it’s damaging, and what we need to do to stop it. Consider this our planted flag.

First off, we want to be clear that this battle won’t be over on March 31st. We declared March the Boycott the RIAA month to draw a line in the sand and to make a strong statement, but this is merely the beginning. Everything we’re going to lay out here will still be true in April, in May, in June, and in the months that follow. March will be not the entirety of our efforts, but rather a kick off of our organized campaign to make a difference. We’ll be posting tips for how to get the word out, ways to support artists without supporting the RIAA, and keeping you updated with everything that’s going on throughout the entire month. With your help, we can educate people about how important this issue is and really make a difference.”
