    No. But apparently there's a similar organization in Britain that could.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Ignorance is bliss, isn't it?

    While the RIAA may not do anything, there is nothing stopping individual record labels from suing users in the UK. Afterall, there are 5 multinational corporations that distribute 70-80% of the music out there. They have copyrights on it all. Pick up a CD at a local store. Does it have the small "c" within a circle? There you go.

    Don't think for a minute that you aren't at risk like us in the US.

    Of course they can.

    It's a civil action, not a criminal one. They don't need any power to do it.

    Can a citizen of the USA sue a british newspaper. Of course they can. They just instruct lawyers in the UK to do it thro' our courts.

    More important question is will they.
