If someone was stealing from me, I'd want them to stop. Go after the biggest offenders.

I am going to put my entire collection of mp3s up on the net. 100s of them literally. That will be the bait...then I am going to wait.
See...they're all mine. The RIAA does not represent me.
Hmm... in fact they dont represent most of us either. Why are there some folks still embracing them.
Sure... stealing is stealing, call it what you want. But this heavy handed tactics of the RIAA are going to prove once and for all who they work for, and people are going to see it loud and clear. Its not us.

You know, I'm wondering if anyone has read about Sen. Orrin Hatch's latest comments. Apparently, he thinks it's a good idea to somehow get code into these music swappers' computer that will corrupt the whole system and effectively destroy their machines, or at least something to that effect. Hmmmmm......

hate to say this, but i reckon they should go for it. if music truly goes free, then we're all screwed.
they're only going after the big uploaders, don't casual downloaders.

It's their legal right to do that, but this is frigging ridiculous. They've completely lost touch with reality. Way to win over the kids, guys, and keep music fun. Good thing the FBI didn't come knocking on my parent's front door when I was in middle school because I taped my friend's CD's onto cassette.

The music business is in trouble right now, NOT because of Piracy but because of STUPIDITY.
