    I just got this idea about the mp3s, if u rename them to a different extension for example a .zip file, so u might have: Nelly-hott in here.zip but if u just try cliking on it, it won't work but if hold shift the open with then use the media player u have then it will play. U might say why not rename them, because that can just take up to much space having the same file on your comp twice. I think this can be a way to fight back against the RIAA because they can't say u are sharing copyrighted "music" because it's not music unless u rename it. What do the rest of u think, my brain was just rambling and I came apon this, so let me know what u think.

    But there is no such copyrighted file as Nelly-hot in herre.zip because it's no such file. It's not software and it's not a .mp3

    It is not mp3 that's forbidden! you can dl legal mp3's.

    it's the content that counts.. So if the content is it is illegal.. In what form that content may be!

    But it has no content, if u double-clik there is nothing there. (This is basically the argument I would use against the RIAA)

    i'm sure a certain member told me irc was legal because they are sharing *.rar and *.zip which are pc files rather than music files.

    Yeah, mp3's are illegal that's why I'm saying if u share the .mp3 under a different extension it's not a song unless it's renamed so noone will know if it is renamed if it's on your comp, but u are sharing the different extension so someone else can do the same thing, but the only problem with renaming is it's the same file as the other one (that's why I say just play that file through your media player by holding shift>open with) because if u download the changed extension then just rename the file to .mp3 and share that then u are in violation of the copyright, but not with a .zip,.jpg,.exe or whatever u rename it too.
