    RIAA can waste their money, get sued, and die.

    Cool. Shut down sites so more can come up.

    Or maybe they're looking to be the next target of terrorism. If you try to censor freedom of speech and expression, people rebel. It will happen again and again if they keep this up.

    Their day is coming. Those that can't adapt to change will become extinct.

    All their continued fighting against it does is make people smarter and more creative. They aren't going to win, period, even the government can only do so much, unless they really are wanting to control everything like a third world country. You can get ISPs in on the act (in fact they have with the new bill), but even they don't have the ability to watch everything all the time. And, honestly they won't try to.

    Hollywood and the music industry is trying to desperately hold on to what already left the building, instead of adapting. Hell, they even limit the goldmines of paid streaming services. I can hit iTunes and various other services right this second and find artists that can't be played because their label didn't license it....that's insane! They are absolute idiots for that. It's the same with Netflix, some things aren't available...umm, hello? These people could make SO much money if they would let go of their old ways. I don't know whether low monthly fees and song prices scare them or what.

    The thing about those is, yes, in the short term, cheaper means less money coming in. In the long term, with quality and more subscribers because of that cheap rate and quality....bank...absolute bank. But nooo. Fine, let them keep going and end up bankrupting themselves.
