Forget what the RIAA is saying, what do the artists ACTUALLY think?

Seems artists are split down the middle on this. Some think piracy is great and like sticking it to the RIAA, others, relatively younger, think it's a scourge on the planet and must be stopped.

Me, I think the RIAA should be sued for harassment and they would better spend their legal fees on innovation, or starting their own download service with nominal fees akin to those asked by Rapidshare, Megaupload, usenet, etc. I'd buy those in order to keep my business legal.

As much as I'd love to see someone shove a boot up the RIAA's greedy arse, I don't think this is the outfit to do it...

Agreed.

But does anyone else think that the argument posed by the lawyers was really not effective at all? I'd hardly say that "limewire strikes back."

Sony should also get sued for providing CD/DVD burners that make the downloaded music easier to burn.

While you're at it, Apple should get sued for selling the Ipod which is where pirated music ends up.

Let's see, who else?

Anywho, 1.4 Billion is a ludicrous improvement over the 75 Trillion that was originally quoted.

It's one guy with a big giant target painted on him because his program at the time was the easiest to learn to use for that purpose even though thats not what it was built for.

Or you could rename it to .jpg and share it on 4chan...

there is a billion ways to share files.

The internet was created for fast and efficient data transfer, or
Information flow.
Music is just a logical extension of that. Bytes transferred over a wire, that's all it is.

that's really funny knowing that they sue people and tries to stop those who illegally download music for free when the rest of the honest, decent listeners pay for their music and picks up the freeloaders' slack.

All this would do is make me want to "steal" music even more so. The RIAA as a whole, is a dick. Billions of dollars in "damages". Just greedy douchebags trying to screw the little people.

I remember that David Draiman of Disturbed said that he didn't need the RIAA to "protect" him. A long time ago, he said that people needed a means to legally buy music online (before itunes took off), but he didn't give a $^%* if they got it through means like Limewire or whatever. He said that they make most of their money going on tour. Record sales, they hardly make a dime. That really goes for most bands too.

1 down and 1000th others up beating each others the get the "best p2p program" title.
TBH, private forums and megaupload are much worst IMO.
And far more effective since they are half private and very fast.

True but those bytes are owned by someone and that someone doesn't want to give them out for free.
