Could the RIAA Just Disappear?

From Slashdot:

BlueMerle writes “Ars Technica is running a story about how EMI is disappointed with RIAA and ultimately they (RIAA) may disappear. ‘Is the RIAA as we know it about to disappear? As rumors continue to swirl that EMI will pull its funding from music trade groups like the RIAA and IFPI, an IFPI spokesman tells Ars that the group is in the middle of a major internal review of its operations.'” I wouldn’t bet the farm just yet.

God willing, eh? The RIAA is literallly destroying music. As far as I can tell, it only exists to make record companies money. It does absolutely nothing for music or musicians. It needs to just go away.
