I discussed the RIAA in a previous post at some point.
Basically, they are the folks that have sued normal people for large amounts of money. The interesting question has started to arise - what happens to the money they take from people they sue?
Well...it's starting to come out that it is NOT the music artists who are getting it. The RIAA is of course claiming that after legal fees there wasn't a lot of money left, but I am really suspicious of that, personally. They are in theory an organization that is supposed to protect the rights of musicians and such, but I wouldn't be shocked if the money was just kind of ending up in people's pockets.
