OK, Let's separate fact from theory.
Is there anyone out there who has direct knowledge or experience of what happens when the RIAA hassels you?
How, exactly, does it work?
Do they just subpeona the person to go to court to testify? Or can they also subpeona the person's computer, too? Or do they need a search warrant to look at your machine?
What is to prevent the person from erasing all incriminating files from their hard drive (using, of course, a good utility to erase it).
Or as one poster says (Maphael, thread="Attention: R ur Playlists Being Shared),
do they just connect to the network like a normal user and download a copyrighted file, and this alone gives them sufficient grounds for legal action? Is Maphael's contention correct?
Has anyone else besides Digital Jammer (thread="I'm Concern(sic)...How do you stop RIAA...") received a "COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT WARNING"? His/hers came from musicunited.net, not RIAA as stated, although whoever that group is, they share RIAA's viewpoint.
(Oops, I was in process of writing this when "Landslide" posted that he got a warning also. Anyone else out there get them?)
Bottom line...does anyone have actual experience and VERIFIABLE FACTS to share?
