The even sadder part, is that artists trying to get away from the RIAA usually cannot even perform or sing their own songs because the RIAA strips them of their copyrights(even tho they sing it), and in some cases, trademarks their voice, and sues the artist themself for performing it outside the "label". The RIAA is nothing but a bunch of crooked greedy old men who fear change.
Can you provide an example of this? While it wouldn't surprise me, I did a Google search for "artist sued for performing own song" and fould nothing relevent to your claim. I would think I would have heard of something like this.
Perhaps not, but it is incredibly hard to break away from labels since they try their hardest to own the copyrights to all produced music under their label. This works in the same sense that an engineer can not claim a patent on a product developed using company time.
