It's amazing how little the "music industry" knows about the music industry. There's one group of people that needs to drop off the face of the earth.
It's almost as funny as Sony saying that you should be buying a separate copy of all of your music for each device you use it on.

They're intent on scaring away all their support! It's amazing.

how many people work for the RIAA?
are they all bitter and insane? or is it just a select group of desperately clueless people, and everyone else is just faking it to get a paycheck?

They are probably trying to work out a contract with blackwater

One suicide attempt that doesn't invoke any sympathy from me.

Anyway, not to try and defend the RIAA or anything, but I guess that this article is quite misleading.
Yes, the lawsuit in question involves a guy ripping CDs that he owns. What it does not mention is that he had placed them in a Kazaa (?) shared folder. It becomes a bit more sensible in knowing that.

people are still using kazaa?
i had no idea we still lived in 2002.

I'm actually starting to get a bit nervous about this stuff. It would suck if I ended up as one of these seemingly random people they arrest for downloading and sharing songs. Thankfully, I think I'm past my peak...I think I've got pretty much all the music I want, and then some.
What I don't get is why the quality of legally downloadable mp3s, from itunes and emusic, are so low? Bleep.com has 320 mp3s I think, and an excellent catalog, but they have a cost of ten pounds per album, and that's just a little too steep, at least compared to the prices over at emusic.

My paths cross very very infrequently with major label artists, so I'm not too worried about it.

storage gets expensive when you have hundreds of thousands of songs. i'm betting the quality is lower to save money buying hard drive space while they're hosting all that music.
