The 12 year old i guess settled it with RIAA. She paid around $2000. This is really stupid.

RIAA is giving its last fight. P2P is not owned by anyone. The software is not even owned by anyone. Its freely available for download. If you paid for your P2P then someone out there ripped you off. There is no way for anyone to stop P2P.

This whole thing is stupid because they can only do it in US. What about the rest of the world? :lol::lol::lol:

There are more than 4million Kaaza users logged in at a time. If they serve notice to 1% then thats 40000. Of these 40000 they will need to gather evidence, find IP address of each of them from Kaaza (which is a pain staking process!), then they have to contact the ISP of these 40000 for address of these people, and then serve them the suit. What will this accomplish? What will scaring 1% will do? Not to mention Kaaza is not the only P2P network, which creates even more work for them.

RIAA should spend more effort on producing quality music than fighting the last battle against MP3. They should figure out a differnt business strategy, MP3/MPC/AAC is here to stay and P2P is here to stay aswell.

Just stop downloading songs that don't belong to you! Criminals are fighting back ... where are we?

By the way, they really don't want to sue you or go through all those process of identifying you. The whole idea is to scare people off and it's working! You guys are concerned aren't you? So it is the right step to take.

That 1% kazaa users are vital. They are the ones buying the CDs. I agree with the part where you mentioned they should find some alternative way to do businesss using the ease of p2p. Yes they are doing it with the apple music ... So they know what they are doing.
And yes they have every right to stop users from illigal activites!

Blanche you paid for it??? I feel so bad for you! Sucker! Search for "kazaalite" on google, you will be amzed what you can get for free!

Did I say I paid for it? Scroll back and read what I wrote. I said "many people". That doesn't mean I'm one of them. Next time watch your filthy mouth.

It seems you do not appreciate my usual friendliness. That happens a lot! Sorry for your misunderstanding!

About those criminal jargon, that's just how I write sometimes - has nothing to do with you. I have 2K downloaded songs if that makes you feel any better. I haven't bought a CD last 5 years and will not buy one in the future! :D

Hopefully that cleared things up! Laterz
