As if the granny-suing, example-making, American idolatry-foisting music industry needed any more bad press, now it seems the RIAA is going after websites that have posted tracks from the forthcoming Nine Inch Nails record, Year Zero. On par, that seems like the sort of thing that the RIAA should be doing. Except, of course, when you consider that the band leaked those tracks intentionally. Speaking to Billboard, an inside source said, “These f*cking idiots are going after a campaign the label signed off on.” To be fair, Trent Reznor’s newest album does feature an intense guerilla marketing campaign. Then again, so did Snakes on a Plane, and that proved to be less than convincing.
