this petition.  It is a mistake to speak of "compensating musicians" for 
copying, because that encourages the <acronym title="Recording Industry 
Association of America">RIAA</acronym>'s dangerous pretense that they have 
"lost" something when people copy.  The appropriate goal is not that musicians 
be "compensated" - it is to support music and musicians.  However, that is no 
reason not to sign the petition.</dd>
