What's also pretty idiotic is taking on the computing black hats. You challenge P2P file sharing, IRC and so forth and you take on some hard case genetically engineered mega-geeks who can do some pretty nasty things to your web sites....
And that's exactly what's happened again: "Reader reports are flooding in that the RIAA.org has been defaced - again. Underneath the greets, there is a list of RIAA 'recommended' file-sharing tools, such as KaZaA and eDonkey. Downloads from these sites are 'sponsored by RIAA'." ;)
Methinks that this is not the last of it, not by a long shot.
More here and here.
Interestingly enough, Slashdot.org have just posted a discussion here on MP3newswire.net's annual losers and winners list in digital media. No surprise here that Kazaa comes first and the RIAA come last. More here and here.
