I've noticed that a few Australian's on the board are unaware about riaa's reach,
Some seem to think that the riaa canít get you if youíre in Australia but that is complety wrong.
This is not to scare people and I think people are not likely to go to jail but it's better to be informed than naive
Months ago the riaa in Australian Got the Federal Police http://www.klboard.ath.cx/bb/index.php?sho...opic=20132&st=0 to raid a bunch of the major ISPS, it's not clear what happened to evidence they got from these raids but it seems they are holding on to it waiting for the right time.
Why can they do this?
Because Australia are signatories to international copyright agreements allowing the riaa and the like to take you to court in Australia.
But while it's a civil matter in the US so civil court( some are trying to change this so it will be criminal thus jail time), in Australia we donít have the luxury of this it's treated as criminal thus criminal court which can mean jail time.
The riaa have a longer reach than just the US.
