    Hope the RIAA realizes that how much they keep suing people there will always be some sort of free music trading online. Programs like Kazaa Lite block IPs from the "bad guys" and programs get smarter all the time to help keep from getting caught. The only way to completely shut down mass trading is to get a court to declare all P2P programs illegal and make it a felony to use them (like how they first brought down Napster). Society has just accepted that downloading as a standard practice and will keep doing it until it's illegal to have the programs themselves. Then again if cds came down in price and went up in qaulity then they wouldn't have this problem in the first place.

    The sad thing the RIAA doesn't realize that the more P2P is prosecuted, the more the public works to make P2P more efficient and less trackable.

    They're pushing the P2P evolutionary chain by leaps and bounds.

    My campus is on the I2 network, but I don't do any p2p over it. But yeah, I could be a target if I did.

    Then they just get a new IP range. It's not foolproof.

    Glad someone agrees.

    Napster was shut down, KaZaA came to be, along with a plethora of others. Start suing KaZaA, bittorrent comes along.

    So instead of downloading individual songs, people can now download whole albums in one sitting.

    Good work, RIAA.

    Agreed. Imagine if they put this much energy into developing better talent or making sure the artists see more profits?

    Correction..

    Bittorrent has been around for a long time, it's just recently that it's become mainstream ;)

    Well, the RIAA thinks that cracking down on file sharing will help artists' profits by increasing the amount of CD sales.

    I stand corrected.

    The RIAA still sucks, though.

    At least the MPAA is being lenient.

    I believe some movie producers are in talks of doing some stuff with BT.

    IMO, the RIAA is fighting a losing battle. They'll never win. People will still continue downloading music. We'll find ways.

    But for now, I'll just go back to downloading music. :)

    I guess I'll be the first to admit that I haven't bought a newly released CD in...wow, forever. I just download them now.

    Usually people say they sample the CDs by downloading some tracks and then buy them, but I just download the whole thing.
