Man the RIAA is really pushing it's agenda. From cartoons to commercials to laws passed just for them, it's really fucked up.
The really scary part is that mainstream america will see their favorite pop/rap/bullshit singers preaching this garbage and get behind these nonsense campaigns that they no nothing about.

If they could learn that using different forms of distribution would net them .75 cents of every dollar sold then I 'll bet they would change their tune. (Oops, unintentional PUN )

On a sort of related point, I just moved campuses at my Uni’ and was very disappointed to discover the new computer system reasonably locked up Which really annoys me - they are seriously cutting down student productivity by doing that! but it does meant there will not be much illegal file sharing going on there, so I guess its worth it …

The RIAA/MPAA sending out threats that activities of users on thier networks can hold the network owners/operators legally liable?
Back in da day, I used to work for an ISP which I was proud to work for (Mindspring) I remember lots of stuff going on about that time, because of all the Napster hype going on.
I thought there was a supreme court ruling that set precident that owners/operators of networks were not held legally liable and were not at any obligation to spend resources to track/monitor activity on thier networks. This was big news at the time. But I wonder what happened with that.
