A super thank you to Hilary Rosen for taking the time to talk with me! Hilary was the CEO of the RIAA from 1998-2003 (during the explosion of music piracy.) she was the face of the industry at a time when that wasn’t especially cool. She received enough death threats that she had to start traveling with security. Even still, she never backed down or cowered for a moment publicly, while privately advocating to label execs for the integration of the technology that was beginning to undo the industry.
