RIAA`s Jonathan Lamy Tweets About SOPA [Pic]

So Jonathan Lamy, senior vice president of the Recording Industry Association of America smugly thinks that Wikipedia's blackout is a joke? This coming from a person in a very comfy position at a dying company? How long has the RIAA been trying to swat away the Internet? When do you think LamyJ's position at the RIAA will become totally irrelevant?

If you want to Tweet anything to LamyJ, his account can be found here.

LAMYJ UPDATE: Instead of being a man and standing behind his words, the Lamster pulled his tweet. Unfortunately, the Internet never forgets.

Lamy, Senior VP of the RIAA tweeted about today`s Anti-SOPA blackout, LamyJ just doesn`t get it, does he.

I was never allowed to use wikipedia as a source, I'm assuming that majority of students are still required to site original sources. Jackass

Why do people have trouble with the factuality of wikipedia when it's both 1) peer reviewed by the entire internet and 2) cites sources?

How are traditional books more trustworthy? There`s no chance there`s bias from the authors or publishers of those? Information that`s out of date or innacurate?

If not wikipedia, then what`s trustworthy?

This whole comment is fail. Wikipedia is not "peer-reviewed". Peer review (and this also is what makes published books and journals better) is conducted by other PROFESSIONALS in the field, who have sufficient training and credentials to properly review a piece of literature. Although Wikipedia is a good starter resource, fact checking of sources is still required.

This just proves how stupid he really is. No college professor I ever had allowed wiki as a source. That said, wikipedia is an excellent place to find sources because they are one of very few sites that list them in an easy to find location.

"After Wikipedia blackout, somewhere, a recording executive today is shoveling out manure about how a lack of online resources leads to better fact gathering, thereby justifying his stance on censorship. And that thought will cause our freedom to perish."

That's like saying the lack of libraries leads to better fact checking because real facts only come from book stores. Libraries, like the internet, are completely full of free information. We all know free information is always inaccurate, just by nature of being free.
