As I view various filesharing/news forums, it seems there are a lot of people who are willing to "stick it to" the RIAA. However, I advise that you procede with caution. Despite Paul's sarcastic sticky's about the RIAA, the dangers are very real.
First off, if your in the US, you should definitely be careful. If it were me, I'd have stopped filesharing for a few months to see how this whole fiascle passes over. I am enough debt as it is, and with around 2000 mp3s, it's just not worth it. Not to mention I'm headed to University to study Software Engineering next year so I need all the money I can get. The reason I haven't stopped? Let's say I feel much safer living in Canada.
I'm not siding with the RIAA, but unfortunately, laws are laws. Have any of you thought of what you would do if you were caught? I'd say you'd most likely settle instead of going to court for a case you'll probably lose.
I know I'm gonna get flamed but think about it. It's not worth it to damage your life/your family's over file swapping on the net. By all means, boycott as much as you wish but be aware. You shouldn't worry too much about Kazaa and others dying because file sharing is a world phenomenon. That is, people outside of the US will keep sharing.
I realize that with the odds of 1,000 out of 4,000,000, you're most likely not to be caught but don't put yourself in unnecessary danger. At the very least, share less files or (*gasp*) leech for a few months.
