    For those who don't know, the RIAA is the Recording Industry Association of America. For more information, see their Wikipedia article.

    What BS are they up to now?

    It's a little old... but they've sued a dead person!

    And what else...?

    They've sued a family that doesn't even own a computer! This is completely ridiculous! How can someone share music when they don't own a computer?!

    There is some good news, though. A case from the RIAA against a little girl has been thrown out by a judge.

    A dead person, a family with no computer, and a little girl! How the hell do they decide who to sue anyway?!

    Yep, that's a great thing about Canada. Plus, Canada's version of the RIAA, the CRIA (Canadian Recording Industry Association), is falling apart.

    well from what I know our law states we are allowed to share p2p anything in canada. Meaning I can send some other canadian a mp3 or a game etc... since p2p is allowed.

    <span style="color:DarkOrchid">The RIAA ain't worth the powder to blow to hell in my opinion, they can kiss my ass.

    I've seen statistics that showed that over 70% of america downloads and shares music illegally. Have fun finding us all, fuckers.</span>

    <div class='quotetop'></div><div class='quotemain'>Important musicians such as Barenaked Ladies and Avril Lavigne have formed the Canadian Music Creators Coalition to among other things, support fans being sued by the Big Four Organized Music cartel. In their first white paper, the artists say, "Fans who share music are not thieves or pirates. Sharing music has been happening for decades."</div>
    http://www.digg.com/music/_Fans_who_share_...aren_t_thieves_
    http://www.musiccreators.ca/

    My respect for the bands and artists in this organization just went up by 50 points.
    Some more good news! Hopefully, American artists are smart enough to form a similar organization.

    <div class='quotetop'></div><div class='quotemain'>They believe that Suing their fans is destructive, digital locks are risky and counterproductive and that cultural policy should support actual artists.</div>

    If it was me I wouldn't mind if a person shared my music... but say if a damn concert or club didn't pay for it i'd be pissed. Someone people can afford or waste cash on 14-20 buck cd.... but clubs and big places SHOULD be able to afford it and pay for it.

    Yeah, cause the people are paying money to hear the music.

    This is completely messed up! The DMCA could end up worse instead of better! They're even targeting image sharing!

    Nooo... YMCA is 10x better than the MPAA, RIAA, and DMCA!

    Anyway, some good news! The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has launched an advertisement campaign against the RIAA.


    Click the button for the Engadget article:
    [spoiler]We try not to get too political or alarmist here on Engadget -- especially when it comes to draft legislation that's yet to make it far in congress -- but Gary Shapiro and the group he represents, the CEA (you may have heard of them?), are taking a stand against big content in America. Sounds like someone's hearing all the whining we (all) do about the overly restrictive DRM and fundamentally adversarial posturing the content industry has consistently taken against consumers and their devices. A release issued by the CEA at Shapiro's behest calls for the immediate passage of bill H.R. 1201 (the Digital Media Consumers' Rights Act of 2005) by the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, on behalf of the HRRC (Home Recording Rights Coalition). Shapiro's on a crusade now, people, to tackle what he perceives as some very serious issues plaguing the industry today, like big content's apparent enforcement of copyright as property law, and the "gross extension of copyright protection" keeping work from entering the public domain. Whether H.R. 1201 is actually going turn up roses we don't yet know, but it's not like there's anything to thing to stop the content companies -- and the CEA's many members -- from lobbying against this bill, especially megacorps like Sony that play on both sides as content and device maker.[/spoiler]

    I have to say that I almost cracked up when I saw the picture of the pirate in the ad. It just seemed really funny. But the ad itself proves a very good point. The RIAA is suing people with families. They're taking money from families because they're greedy bastards. Hopefully congress will side with the families instead of the greedy RIAA. Who really needs the money more, after all? I'm sure the RIAA can survive without making a thousand percent (or whatever ridiculous amount of money they leech off of the artists) profit!

    Oh crap...

    http://www.webpronews.com/topnews/topnews/...reHello30M.html

    Most important part of the article:
    <div class='quotetop'></div><div class='quotemain'>BearShare was among several P2P service to receive cease-and-desist letters from the RIAA in September of last year. Others include Warez P2P, Limewire, eDonkey, and Soulseek, all of whom have not yet reached a settlement.</div>

    Fuck! Could this be the end of Limewire or even the entire gnutella network?! Soulseek is also named! They won't give up, will they?!
