Thread: What To Do If The Riaa Gets Sue Happy

  1. #1
    Now, I might be called crazy, but I think this was a stroke of genius. I don't know about you, but I am watching my steps in the next few months, what with the RIAA's new authority to sue at will those of us who have copyrighted songs on our computers.

    Now, i know as well as you do that internet sharing will never completely die, but if this goes down, there's going to be quite a lot of work that must happen in order for p2p to continue. I know I dont want to get sued by those white collar bastards, and I'm sure you don't either. But, if this does happen, I think that somehow, somebody should find a way to open CD rental stores. Why not? It's just like a video rental store. People can still (AND DO) pirate those. If they could open up nation-wide, the RIAA would shit themselves and lose even more money while they are at it. Just a thought i figured people should know. In theory, it works...

    Oh i wont get caught. But what the hell are we going to do when over 50% of the P2P users sh!t themselves and delete their shareware? you know that most of the kazaa users are about as computer literate as a rock.

    That is the sound of a 13-year-old digging his heels in the ground.

    "Wahhhh...you sue me, I'll just sit here and not do anything. I'll teach YOU."

    Geeeeeez.

    Another thought...those of you who aren't concerned about the RIAA, clue everyone else in on what you know and we don't. And I don't mean stupid, mindless "We're Kazaa, we rule" stuff. I mean something constructive, some good reason why we would not be caught.

    And you don't get this? You really don't think that the musicians have some sort of reason to be concerned that we upload all their music and they don't see one red cent from us? Well, you should at least be honest enough to understand there are two sides to the issue. If you can't do that...well, I just don't know. Then you would seem to just be seeing what you want to see.

    Hey, I want to keep using Kazaa too. But I see a real and present danger here. Somebody tell me EXACTLY why I shouldn't. Better yet, somebody convince me that I shouldn't just leech, and you'd better give me a better answer than, "You're a #%^%$# if you do."

    I've found the best thing in the world to solve this, it's called PGP Personal Edition, PGP Drive... I mount PGP encrypted "virtual drives" according to my Private Key and simple dismount them with a "single click" if somebody comes knocking, or the telephone rings i just click "UnMount All Drives" I may sound paranoid but at least i'm not worrying about 'them' anymore... i can keep my movies, and still share my movies, just toss those old CDRs and i'll be good... or mabe even wait for them to delaminate...

    For $50 i paid for their Personal Edition (no i couldnt find a crack, nor do i want Cracked Encryption Software just something i wouldn't trust ever, and the fact that it has a online activation) which has PGP drive, their Free version doesnt, but the encryption is still neat, and the free version includes PGP Drive Wipe to shred all those old files you deleted but are still hiding on your drive.
