NAB deal with RIAA/musicFirst


An armed gunman entered a Washington DC bank, aimed the gun at the teller and demanded money. “The gun I’m holding might be a toy or it might be real” he said “but taking into account that it might not be real you should give me half your money instead of all of your money”. “Well” said the banker, “Half our money seems a little extreme considering the gun might be a toy, how about if we give you one tenth of our money every month and a toaster, and you also have to wash my car.” Then the banker looked around at all of the employees and asked “what do you all think? Do you agree with the great deal I’ve made?” The employees all wondered when they entered the Twilight Zone.

By the way, thank you for all of the great work from everyone at RBR.
