 boycott-riaa.com - Article: RIAA DOWNLOAD CERTIFICATION AN ATTEMPT TO MONOPOLIZE
Perhaps the RIAA’s new jurisdiction is just another ploy to attract more attention to the specific artists they want to push and will have no relevance in the industry’s long run, as many feel the cartel of the major labels will be extinct soon, if not already permanently dismantled.
It comes as a complete surprise that the RIAA has elected itself to decide what is “legitimate” since many experts are publicly stating that the RIAA’s member labels are not the gatekeepers of musical success anymore.
Based on the RIAA’s exclusionary policy change, one could argue that it seems that the RIAA and its member labels (who many feel are run by out-of-touch aging executives) are really not interested in recognizing successful artists gaining traction via legal downloads.

 Elvis' Record Sales
Prior to the inception of the RIAA., gold awards were most often awarded 'in house' by record companies to their artists and did not necessarily carry 'official' status.
The certification by the RIAA of an artist's record sales is solely up to the artist's record company, whom if they so choose, must submit lists of records that they believe are deserving of awards from the RIAA., who will then independently audit sales accounts to determine if an award is indeed warranted.
However, the RIAA has expanded the certification requirements to include non-traditional outlets, allowing sales of LP's (CD's) (and all other music, for that matter) from military bases, fulfilment houses such as Reader's Digest or Publisher's Clearing Houses, mail order outlets, TV advertisements, and Internet sales to be included along with retail sales.
