Look up counter-intuitive in the dictionary

Not happy to alienate their customer base by suing them and calling them criminals, the RIAA has now resorted to calling radio "a form of piracy, if you will" and are poised to demand royalties from radio play.

The radio industry counters that "if it wasn't for radio play, most of the performers wouldn't be known".

Maybe I'm stupid or something, but shouldn't an industry that depends on effective promotion to sell their product cut those who assist with that promotion (for free no less) a little slack?

Thanks to Ernest for the tip.
