U.S. Music Sales Up

Thursday, November 20, 2003 | 10:49 AM

Does the improving U.S. economy have anything to do with this? How about a slew of new and critically well reviewed CDs? The availability of legit on-line music services?

Naah. Not if you ask the RIAA -- they will tell ya its the enforcement hammer that's sending consumers scurrying into retailers to buy CDs.

I don't believe them -- and you shouldn't either. To paraphrase, "Its the economy, stupid."
