Netwerk Press Release:
NETTWERK MUSIC GROUP TAKES ON THE RIAA
NEW YORK- Canadian based artist label and management company Nettwerk Music Group has joined the fight against the RIAA on behalf of consumers who wish to download music.
In August 2005, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) filed a complaint against David Greubel for alleged file sharing. Greubel is accused of having 600 suspected music files on the family computer. The RIAA is targeting nine specific songs, including 'Sk8er Boi' by Arista artist, Avril Lavigne, a Nettwerk management client. The RIAA has demanded Greubel pay a $9,000 stipulated judgment as a penalty, though it will accept $4,500 should Greubel pay the amount within a specific period of time.
'Suing music fans is not the solution, it's the problem,' stated Terry McBride, C.E.O of Nettwerk Music Group.
