I think the industry should move towards more subscription based services, such as the unlimited iTunes downloads proposed by apple on the purchase of a new iPod, I feel things like this are the only way to reduce the amount of people who download illegally.

The University of TN here in Knoxville, TN reports your crap to the MPAA. If they get a letter of law suit for piracy or copyright infringment, they pass that piece of paper right back onto you. Lucky they assign each person a static IP for each machine you have on their network.

here at UW-Madison they are great about it. when they receive a letter or lawsuit they just get you to delete the stuff and then always get out of having to go to court. its pretty sweet.

Lucky you, however here, they do give you warnings for downloading music and movies. Now, you can download all the application's you want and no one cares but Music and movies are a big no-no.

On a positive note, UT did give us the Ruckus network so that we can download music free of charge but they are protected WMA's. However, if you get the program Tunebite, it removes the protection by recording them as whatever file type you want. IMO, it rocks because they have every new album and you can download them 1 song at a time or the whole album. They've even got alot of old stuff that I couldn't find anywhere.

at the end of the day, the record companies are all greedy ********

Really its up to the record companies to come up with a radical new way of raising revenue rather than making the general public suffer. I know that since this whole anti piracy thing has come into force I have not bought a single album. I refuse to give the record companies my money if they are trying to enforce that everyone should pay up for music in an age where information is so easy to come about and so easy to share.

As far as I am concerned, this is just last ditch attempts by record companies to postpone the inevitable - the collapse of the record industry, and opening a new age of music distribution where bands get fairer wages, touring by bands is encouraged, and people can enjoy a wide range of music without giving a wad of cash to the big man.

Call piracy stealing if you like. The truth is, the record industry has been stealing your cash for far longer.
