The Recording Industry Association of America -- which has long criticized
the MP3 downloadable music format for its lack of copyright protection
-- has released an MP3 of its own at www.riaa.com. The track, "Millennium
(RIAA 2000)" by Avatars of Dub, is described on the site as
"ambient drive-by trip-hop." The RIAA represents the world's five major
music corporations and is working with technology companies to develop
copyright protection standards for MP3 and other formats.
