RIAA Wants to Hack Your PC post #1  quote:



Just found this

WASHINGTON -- Look out, music pirates: The recording industry wants the right to hack into your computer and delete your stolen MP3s.

http://www.wired.com/news/conflict/0,2100,47552,00.html

How will they ever prove that your mp3's were ripped from your own CD's or downloaded? How would they ever lygistically filter all computers out there.. ..scan entire harddrives then decide what is "stolen" and what isn't. Not to mention the constitution or international jerisdiciton. Talk about hopeless futile pipedreams by those that don't have even a grasp of the situation or how to address it.

At the end of the day music is easly shared in todays world and there's no stopping it, ever!! The industry is going to have to react by improving their product!! Wether it be by providing additional content in CD's that can't be so easly shared or offer added intrest in having the real product. Or hey maybe they could make the price of a CD reasonable!! No one argues that they would prefer to have a CD than to download the songs.. ..but at 20 bux a pop.. ..there's more than enough temptation.. ..let alone resentment to being ripped off to "share" the music online.

I see this whole mp3 revolution as a good thing. The music industry has been soaking consumers and artists for too long and this is only going to force them to change their "evil" ways.

It's no joke. Lobbyists for the [RIAA] tried to glue this hacking-authorization amendment onto a mammoth anti-terrorism bill that Congress approved last week.


What bastards.. I so hope pork-barrel legislation like this is eliminated from our legal system.

They are trying to justify their actions thinking that THIS somehow makes it legal. It doesn't. They're idiots.

They may not obtain unauthorized access to computers without being penalized. Moreover, if they do obtain unauthorized access, they may not be immunized of liability for any auxilliary damages that may (and will) occur to that machine as they are seeking.

This is ridiculous. They seriously want to hire a team of hackers to poke around where they don't belong? They clearly have no clue how quickly a rebelious crew of hackers could launch a massive peer-2-peer network that would sumply be too astronomically large for them to ever hope having an impact on it.

Go back to the drawing board, boys.

Oh yeah, and RIAA is dismissing claims of a hack group on this site that says they were contracted by RIAA to develop "antipiracy tools" which they took to mean "virii / worm hybrids" (illegal, illegal, illegal! )

RIAA's response, "It's not true."

They can slightly alter their strategy that they're attempting now. Right now, they make multiple "bunk" copies of the song available for download hoping to saturate the peer-to-peer population with crappy, repetitive, or incomplete versions of the song - making it more difficult for folks to find the true legitimate version.

Should they take that a step further, they can begin to ID those who are grabbing their music "illegally". They need only release a legitimate version of the song that is digitally tagged in some way that indicates you downloaded the song from one of their sources rather than making a back up copy from your CD.

Yeah, this "scare tactic" is quite lame - and I believe that's all it really is - a lame scare tactic that has the potential of doing nothing but back-firing.
