    Maybe not in the hundreds of millions, but surely in the hundreds, then possibly in the thousands. I know first hand in my home town, that Verizon released the name of one guy for sharing over 600 mp3's. Verizon is my ISP also. Fortunately, I haven't been sharing for a VERY long time.
    If there is easy money to be made by suing, then they'll do it. Got some greedy laywers backing them up.







    (How ironic, the RIAA is suing its potential music customers)

    Thats s*it man.....

    But how can they have enough money to start filing lawsuit after lawsuit, into the thousands !?

    And then stretch it to outside America - it just isnt possible - with the growth of the internet virtually everyone uses it now for downloading music and movies.

    Whats next then - the Movies association starts sueing everyone?

    I just cant see it happening properly....or maybe i am just hoping it wont happen.....

    Anyway I hope the b*stards dont get any of you in the US, or anywhere else.

    They got the money now (from all the sales of the music, I assume. Maybe pre-internet cash). It will be a snowball effect. Anyhow, the money from the first few hundred will backup suing the next few hundred, then thousand.

    They'll do it. They are in too deep now to give up now.

    Then the movie industry will immediately follow, at the expense of the music industry.

    Then other countries will learn then "ropes' of the USA laws and follow through.

    etc..
    etc...

    This isn't about money!
    It's about control.

    They can sue all the filesharers they want ( and maybe even win), but they'll never see a penny of the fines. How many 18 year olds have a couple of million dollars laying around?
    Look at what happened to the four college students they sued a couple of months ago- they were suing for millions and settled for a couple of thousand.

    The industry has lost the control of music that they enjoyed ( and exploited) for decades.
    Big acts ( i.e. The Eagles) are bypassing the major companies to form their own.
    Bands like Phish encourage their fans to share live bootlegs, going so far as to provide good soundboard copies online.
    Bands are starting to realize that they can bypass the Industry and deal directly with their fanbase- thus cutting off the middleman.
    A small band can produce their own CDs, sell them direct over the Internet and turn a profit on far fewer sales than if they had to support the bloat/excess that is the music industry today.

    This latest attack by the RIAA has less to do with the rights of the poor starving artist than it does with maintaining the lifestyle of the corporate execs.
