I asked iMesh by e-mail and got no answer.

YES!!not according to the RIAA. He's never had a album of any kind... EVER.... certified as platinum by the RIAA. He's had singles go platinum, never albums.
There really isn't that much of a difference. Just the whole structure system.
RIAA is responsible from all Gold, Platinum and Diamond recording awards, based completely on sales. Actually RIAA awards are not based on sales - they never have been. They are based on royalties paid to the performer. ANY record company will say that their performer sold 10,000,000 copies - as several companies have done this! But when it comes to paying for those royalties - they provide NO proof whatsoever!!!

This is a very tricky question. It depends on the website in question and whether not they have been authorized by the RIAA to do business. To put it simply, when a music site launches they are supposed to ask the RIAA if they can do business, then they purchase licenses or rights to make the songs available for purchase. A lifetime membership fee music download site would probably not make the RIAA very happy because say you pay $1 or $1,000, over the LIFE of the membership, the profit the RIAA and its labels make per song would probably be very, very, little.
Yes. The RIAA (Recording Industry of America Association) tracks and will prosecute IP addresses they find violating copyrighted material. One example is at North Carolina State University, where in the Fall of 2007, 32 students received letters from the RIAA asking for $3000 to settle the charge of copyright infringement. The NC State students did not take kindly to this, and will battle the RIAA in court this coming year.
