What exactly *IS* "organized crime"? You often hear such crimes as money laundering, loan sharking, racketeering, etc. referred to as "organized crime". But is it just me, or does the government only call it "organized crime" when it's run by families or groups of individuals? When big corporations do the exact same thing, it's called business.
The RIAA is clearly guilty of racketeering, in their endless extortion of individuals ("pay us or we'll sue you" isn't much different from "pay us or we'll burn down your business").
Credit card companies do the same exact thing that a loan shark does -- they offer you credit in return for a promise to pay that money back. Loan sharks may charge more interest (though I would consider a credit card with a 24-25% interest rate a "loan shark"), and if you fail to pay their reaction is certainly more severe, but the act of lending money is the same.
Illegal drugs? People only use illegal drugs because there are no legal drugs which offer them the same "benefits". Of course, if there were, they would be offered by pharmaceutical companies at unreasonable prices.
Copyright infringement (black-market CDs and software, etc)? If the rights-holding companies charged a reasonable price for their product, this wouldn't be an issue. But $300 for an operating system, $400 for an office suite, and $22 for a 45-minute CD are all unreasonable.
So when does it stop being "business" and start being "organized crime"?
