Response from NARAS.

To give both sides equal time on my humble blog, here is the response from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (“The Grammy” folks) the the Grokster decision.

My take: Both sides are full of sh*t.

The EFF and other supporters are willing to ignore, or at least gloss over, the fact that the networks are primarily used as a means to illegally distribute copyrighted material by arguing that some legitimate uses exist for the network, and they are indeed used in those legitimate ways. The RIAA, NARAS and MPAA, on the other hand, are full of it in ways that I’ll get into later.

P.S., I am a NARAS member.
