RIAA Reaction to Criticism of Piracy Loophole in Net Neutrality Rules

In reading through Greg Sandoval’s post at cnet on the trade associations remarks, I am amused at how they choose to interpret the outcry over the loophole in the FCC’s network neutrality draft rules.

Of course they want to suggest that opponents to the loophole are saying they should deal with the real problem of copyright infringement. Don’t be fooled. This is a clear example of a Hobson’s choice, a lopsided way of presenting their arguments that suggest we either accept the loophole or allow pirates to savage the entertainment industry to death. If we close the loophole, nothing prevents continuing discussions of how to deal with infringement online as an orthogonal concern.
