    As stated in the article, this has been done before, and failed hard. The RIAA itself has spent more in tech tricks and court costs than the industry they "protect" has lost. Russia should also be a fun place to interfere in, what is there and in a few other countries a billion-dollar industry. One wonders if the Bratva won't have something to say about that. All that aside, you can annoy pirates, but you can't stop them. The many years of failure should prove that. Heck, you can't even call the destruction of Napster a success, when all it did was make such services multiply like a wet Mogwai.
