There’s a sucker born every minute. Spammers make a “living” the same way. Spammers spam to millions, and make all their profit on the miniscule percentage that respond to the offer. The RIAA is doing much the same thing – making a dubious offer to the gullible – and it’s not really surprising that the response rates are similar to the response rates for spam.
I would love to get hold of the list of people that have responded to the RIAA’s offer. I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I want to sell cheap.
