    Hi

    Having followed the story a bit, from what I can gather, the RIAA does not really represent the performers who are supposedly losing $$. The poster child (12 yr. old) apparently downloaded thousands of songs and distributed them. The fine was readily paid.

    Is there more to this or am I missing something?

    :Dim not falling for that lol they fine a 78 year old man earlyer like hundreds of thousands of dollars

    sorry bub the riaa is evill pure and simple.

    they break in to computers invade your privacy legaly hack you put trojans in your pc then threatin your isp provider then go after you with law inforcement.

    not to mention that you can have similar handle on winmx like blaze and there over 1000 blazes useing that name.

    they can easly sue you for haveing same name as another file sharere

    worst off how could you prove your inocence then

    it use to be inocent until proven guilty

    not no more you are guilty unless you higher a computer expert to look at your pc testifie in court that you wernt the one shareing mp3

    i dont know if you work for the riaa

    but i know most people here dont aprove of there methode even if there algaints mp-3 swaping

    its like giveing a private company law inforcement rights to be abused

    Hey Mr Blaze,

    Methinks you misinturpreted my post. I do not support the RIAA raid. Not being a downloader myself I have no personal bone to pick. Most people have been copying stuff for personal use for years. I don't think it is proper to do this for profit. If it is a 12 yr old or a 72 yr old person is irrelevlant. Not being a puter whiz like you, I didn't understand most of your reply. You really didn't diss me did you? Ouch!

    From what I have read, the performers do not support RIAA except for maybe the top 10.

    Ciao, big ed

    o_O The effectiveness of "Online petitions" has been questioned many times, but one can't help but be concerned after reading stuff like this:

    Facing the music
    http://news.com.com/2100-1083-5075332.html
    Sept 12, 2003
    "The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) filed 261 lawsuits against alleged file swappers, charging them with 'egregious' copyright infringement potentially worth millions of dollars in damages. The lawsuits mark the first time that copyright laws have been used on a mass scale against individual Internet users. The lawsuits also mark a turning point in the industry's three-year fight against online song-trading services such as Kazaa and the now-defunct Napster.
    - Monday's lawsuits are just the first wave of what the group said ultimately could be 'thousands more' lawsuits filed over the next few months. Under copyright law, violators can be held liable for up to $150,000 per violation--a measure that could result in stunningly high damage figures for some of the defendants in this round of suits.
    - One of those targets wound up being a 12-year-old honors student who lives in a New York City Housing Authority apartment...The quick settlement points both to the public relations dangers of the RIAA's shotgun lawsuit approach and to its simultaneous effectiveness..."


    File-swapping lawsuits: Are you next?
