      RIAA Spent $2.8M Lobbying Feds

      The recording industry's trade group spent nearly $2.8 million pumping up the volume on its lobbying on Capitol Hill last year.

      The Washington-based Recording Industry Association of America lobbied on a bill to limit fees charged to Internet radio stations for music broadcasts and on efforts to limit copyright violations, especially overseas.

      The trade group spent $2.1 million lobbying in the second half of 2007, according to a form posted online Feb. 12 by the Senate's public records office. It spent $659,000 on lobbying in the first half of the year.

      Lobbyists are required to disclose activities that could influence members of the executive and legislative branches, under a federal law enacted in 1995.

      -Baba Orunmila

      "Cowardice asks the question: is it safe? Expediency asks the question: is it political? Vanity asks the question: is it popular? But conscience asks the question: is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor political, nor popular - but one must take it simply because it is right."
