Well I think the fact that they send out lawsuit notices to grandmothers with no pc's, dead people, and HP printers pretty much speaks for itself.

Doesn't it block the IP's of those who are unethically spying on you?

Actually I disagree entirely.

The underground economy has always hidden behind privacy rights. And when Copyright holder's are not offering competitive prices and instead price gouging, the corrective action of the underground economy is well deserved as a counter balance.

Would you let the FBI stand behind you as you use your computer because you MIGHT burn a CD from your friends CD?

Oh I get it, because the agent isn't physically there, its a reasonable breech of privacy right? Bull. Absolute Bull. Spying on my connection should require no less than a search warrant.

That is completely untrue.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation and particularly describing the place to be searched and the persons or things to be seized.
—U.S. Constitution, Amendment IV

They haven't found their soul, they're just trying to get off the hook for all the dumb things they've done in the past five years. Don't let them sway you!

Maybe the day will come where ISP's are advertising that the RIAA can't monitor them... They'd have my money.

ughs... it would be really embarrassing if my ISP told my dad there had been a bunch of bandwidth relating to my empornium torrents.

Yeah, because if you are contacted by your ISP and told you have been uploading/downloading copyrighted content, that means they have been looking at what you are uploading and downloading, which is a serious invasion of privacy.

Also, I download a lot of games. Now hold on before you get your panties in a bunch.

I already own the games that I am downloading. I purchase them on steam, get the CD key, and then download the disc images of the retail version of the game and install them with the CD key that I legally own.

I hate steam, but this is the only way I can get the games quickly without leaving my seat.

...contact the customer with a notice that would ultimately be followed by a reduction or cessation of service
Haha, yeah right. So the ISPs would rather work with the RIAA and reduce piracy than take your money??? What a fairy tale. I don't think that anybody has anything to worry about.

This sounds more effective than going around suing a bunch of 9 year-olds.

It is. If you take a political science class, you learn that the courts find an "implied right to privacy" in the 1st, 5-8th Amendments.

This seems like a better solution, and one they might gain ground on piracy with.
