[P2PNet] RIAA to LimeWire: You owe us $1.5 Trillion - Page 5

post #41 of 147
the RIAA and MPAA have been quite.. clinically insane lately. who's on the list?
*limewire client
*limewire users
*bittorent users -bad movieThe Hurt Locker
*the pirate bay
*..., ..., etc.

what next? google for helping people find downloads? dell, hp, apple, etc. for manufacturing computers? ISP's for allowing people to download anything they want? the supreme court for ruling against every single one of their BS cases presented? the city of new york, NY for failure to fix their bedssidewalks????

where dose it end? where and when?

The RIAA aka Klaus also wants LimeWire’s assets frozen.

“By this motion, Plaintiffs seek a preliminary injunction imposing an immediate freeze on all of Defendants’ assets to prevent them from any further attempts to insulate their ill-gotten gains from a future judgment. The Court has found Defendants Lime Wire LLC (’Lime Wire’), Mark Gorton (’Gorton’), and Lime Group LLC (’Lime Group’) liable for inducing infringement of Plaintiffs’ copyrights (and related state law claims). (May 25, 2010 Amended Opinion & Order (“Order”).) Plaintiffs will be entitled to substantial damages, totaling hundreds of millions of dollars, or even billions, because of the massive infringing conduct for which these Defendants are liable.”
riddle me this. How the hell do Limewire pay this if they only have a certain amount of money BELOW 1.5 trillion? They can't so thus the RIAA are filthy greedy bastards. Thats it, next time there is an election PIRATE PARTY ftw. I don't care for an infraction because the RIAA is stupid and mind numbingly idiotic. Whoever invented them must be killed immediately because he is above and beyond the govt. for some damn reason.

These are VERY interesting points.

Another search engine was ordered to comply with an order (I'll avoid mentioning them)...they essentially changed their format from a torrent oriented display result to a Google like display result.

They return the exact argument, "Now, how does this not resemble Google?"

They refer to the notion as an "Agnostic" search engine, and attempt to inform the court that the exact same search results can be obtained IN Google by using .torrent in the search.

Yet you bring up the related point I hint to in my previous post about the cassette tape and the solution they deployed way back then.

Conceivably they argument was that the cassette tape had but one common purpose....the average consumer owning a cassette deck couldn't possibly be recording anything OTHER than either FM radio broadcasts or LP disc originals, so they taxed it FOR the RIAA.

If they got some similar idea up their...anatomy...they could conceivably get a similar cash percentage for every computer sold, or every copy of an operating system (though, it IS more obvious that the utility of a computer can't be assumed as it was in the case of the cassette tape.....but don't put it past the RIAA to try and figure a way)....

While the RIAA does have problems, it's not funny to call somebody 'retarded' or they have 'Down's Syndrome'. There could be people here who can be offended by that.

Imagine if they could have gotten a similar presumption regarding the Internet....they could have been receiving a portion of our ISP service payment, just 'cause "it's what everyone does with it" - just like they assumed with the cassette tape.
Actually, if memory serves me, I do believe there is a tax on CD blanks just as there were for cassettes. I'll have to find a source for that (A little outdated, but I think it still holds true. Only CD's labeled as being CD-R Audio are taxed in the US.) And they essentially tried to get a tax on internet service by asking the ISP's to monitor for illegal downloads and pay for it. However the telcos running the internet are a lot more powerful than the RIAA and MPAA.

HAH offended? The RIAA is a joke created by idiots! Have you seen the crazy fines they have put on people? one woman downloaded off of limewire 30 songs, they fined her $2 million. A guy download a few songs off of torrents 1 million. the RIAA have also tried to shut down TPB for over 10 years now, with no success even with courts. ITS A DAMN JOKE NOW !
