[ars]RIAA investigating firms working without licences

post #1 of 16

So the question is again is the RIAA or its affiliates overstepping our constitutional right to unjust search?

I hate to bring the topic up but this seemed like a worthy addition to the already large amount of threads on the RIAA

i think it's stupid that Forensic Investigators need PI licenses to be able to collect evidence. It makes sense in the eye of the law, but it doesn't, practically. It just means that it's going to cost the average business/person more to collect evidence of a crime because there are far less people that are both talented with computer forensics and that are also private investigators. it's like someone with MCSE must have an A+ in order for his MCSE expertise to be valid. I'm curious, though, if you're a network administrator and you gather evidence from your own network, if that will stand in court even if you aren't a PI.

Actually it's good. It's using the law as intended: for the protection of the common weal.

The outfit that is doing the investigating for the RIAA should have to jump through all the hoops...get licensed etc.

Which is why I hope piracy gets worse and the whole music industry collapses. Or they finally realize that they can't stop piracy using the same ideology Hitler used and change their horribly outdated business models.

I agree that the RIAA should be properly licensed. I wish I knew more about what becoming a PI entails.

... this is a neat tidbit:

Quote:
The majority of states in the United States and the District of Columbia require private detectives and investigators to be licensed. Licensing requirements vary, however. Seven states—Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, and South Dakota—have no statewide licensing requirements, some states have very few requirements, and many other states have stringent regulations.

That doesn't seem like it can be compared to what the RIAA is doing with MediaSentry. I mean, if you investigated your own network you have every right to do that. It's just like auditors don't need a PI license to do audits on their own company.
