Thread: i got emailed by the RIAA

  1. #1
    "Dear registered user of the site, We have recently been investigating the activities of the users of the site and we have found that this site exists for the sole purpose of music piracy. Pirating music is a criminal offence and we believe it should be obvious to you that the results outweigh the benefits - hard working artists won't be rewarded for their work and will stop producing music, ultimately leading to a severely reduced selection of music both in the shops and for download. The RIAA had hoped that the disabling by the police of the large illegal music site,, would stop a lot of people from engaging in piracy, as they don't want to be seen as criminals. However, this appears to not be the case, as two large new sites have sprung up in its place. This email is the final warning to all of you who were members of and are current members of If we find you to be committing any more criminal acts of piracy then we will have to press charges against you, as representatives of the major record companies of America. Yours Faithfully, The RIAA"

    What was the sending email address?

    I read the detailed explanation about what's happened on What the last couple of days and their malicious hacker could be spamming members...

    I would only worry if you got a letter from the email is nothing legal.

    arkie, please read one of the several other threads for that information. You'll find it better presented there than rehashed here.
