    Again we see another company with good ideas, such as delivering revenue from file swapping directly to artists, fold under the might of the evil empire that is the RIAA.

    When will this evil empire come to an end?

    More menacing than the Daleks....

    Greedier than J.R Ewing....

    Who are they? The RIAA. The clearest and best example of capitalist greed this side of the 21st Century. (Well, maybe the 2nd best......)


    They should team up with Microsoft (the best example of capitalist greed) and really become The Borg!!!

    This is now, as far as I am aware, the second time that this has happened. How long can it go on? How long can my beloved Kazaa network endure???

    Just my theory.....

    Methinks there is a consortium of companies, running Kazaa.. who pass the buck to another member each time one is sued by the RIAA.... in the end, no one can be defeated in court..... One always takes up the mantle.....

    Just my theory... :) ;)

    It's about time some people stood up to the RIAA. They can't always have their way.

    Let Peer to Peer file sharing prevail! Don't you lamerz understand>!>!>! Its the entertainment format of the 21st century! Get real you can't fight it!

    When people watch TV in a hundread years, they will be getting their programs downloaded from their neighbour's box next door.... Its the way its meant to be.....

    Soon everyone shall be on one large peer to peer file sharing network... it shall be part of the next tcp/ip stack.... you can't stop it so start living with it!!!

    I receive a hundred god damn spams in my mail box every day! its that enough???!?! For that alone I should at least be able to get the top 10 singles free on mp3 each week.

    I am in the business, currently, of setting up my own file sharing server, just so when I download a cool mp3, or a good movie, I share it with the rest of the internet 24/7

    I would gladly pay my £10 a month, if it meant that I could guilt freely, and legally, download whatever song or movie I wanted, and burn it to CD, that i knew that that money was going to the people who made that movie, or sang that song.....

    that £1 was going to viacom for that "Enterprise" episode I downloaded and burned to CD.....

    ....that that £2 was going to Massive Attack themselves for that track I made part of my MP3 disk 24.....
