why stop there? keep all the money, financials indicate that EMI needs every cent.
by their own admission, the lobbies are losing enormous sums in their anti-consumer campaigns, and EMI's return on this investment is customer hostility and even lower sales. it's a losing game, and sounds like it would be more effective (and cost-effective) to bring lobbying in-house.
use the savings to fund a viable, subscription-based or low-price-per-unit online portal for your content (or just buy eMusic, they've already done it).
your bottom line will thank you.
