The RIAA has entered into a partnership with government funded, non-profit Internet safety foundation i-SAFE INC. to help guide students to safe and legal access of digital music.
"Our partnership with the RIAA will allow us to educate more students about the proper use of intellectual property," said i-SAFE Pres. and CEO TERI SCHROEDER. "Through awareness we empower teens to make appropriate decisions on the Internet and make a positive change in both attitude and behavior."
"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with i-SAFE," said RIAA Chairman & CEO MITCH BAINWOL. "The organization is a recognized leader in this field. It will be a pleasure to learn from them and to help students learn about the music industry."
BAINWOL added, "Today’s kids enjoy and consume more music than any generation before. Yet the rapidly evolving nature of the online world makes thoughtful dialogue on these issues all the more important. We look forward to working with i-SAFE to help initiate these conversations with more and more young people -- conversations that are sure to result in smarter choices down the line."
