RIAA Suing Kazaa UsersWatch
Ok How is it legal for them to pick and choose who their taking to court. How is it legal for them to have the ability to sue 1,000,000 people but only take 3,000 they Discriminately CHOOSE to sue. I dont see how that's allowed.
has anyone else noticed that they might be messing with the new songs that ur tryoing to download all of me and friends songs that we try to download start off good and then get all fuzzy and u can't hear it well i've heard this on over 10 songs
They won't be so smug then. These people are a cancer on society (not the sort of cancer we price third world countries out of treating).
ps heart disease and rotting teeth rule
pps it is unfair to say metalica milking 60 million out of a record deal is criminal.
Oh yeah and in all the lists i've seen of users, this one user comes up a lot: [email protected] Dude sure is popular hahahahahahahahahahahaha.
Downloading is safer than sharing, but it is NOT OKAY to just download and not share, because then the networks won't work.
If you are worried, just switch to a new network, soul seek, lime wire, whatever.
Just don't let em win by scaring you. They're wrong, don't forget that.
I think they should just sue the creator of kazaa. We're the customers. I mean, come on. Who would give up a chance to download free music?
They're wrong, don't forget that.
Music business is an oxymoron. Something that comes from the human soul from nothing is not for sale. This is the true disease of immorality that capitalist pigs who think anything is for sale spread throughout mankind. Not to mention the price gouging that has been going on between retailers and the industry as well as artists who recieve pennies off of CD sales. That's why they TOUR. That is how they make their money and always has been. So download away, maties.
The RIAA should combat it by opening up their back-catalogues on their own network. For a small registration fee the music or any digital medium, could be made available. By cutting out manufacturing and marketing costs the amount made in registration fees would purely be royalty money for the artists (minus network admin costs).
To whom this concerns:
1) rumors: Someone I know said that Kazaa is suing random users up to $150,000 per song they download. "They need the money for lawyers for their cases!!!"
2) Im sure that they (gov./kazaa) want us to lay low for a while, I also heard that they are targeting the high users. The ones noted as "Supreme Beings" on kazaa
3) Recommendations: -Don't dl for a while
-Don't let other people upload
-follow posts and the news
-spread the word about the lawsuits,
there are still people that don't know
-Check into other dl sites, (ie: iMESH)
iMESH hasn't been targeted yet...

best to lie low a while?
You are beginning to sound like an infiltrator my friend
"Hollywood's disdain for file-sharing can be measured in the 10-foot stack of papers that make up Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios v. Grokster et al., which sits on file in the Los Angeles federal courthouse. In the suit, a roster of entertainment conglomerates accuse FastTrack-enabled services Kazaa, Morpheus, and Grokster of profiting from a "21st-century piratical bazaar." Record labels and movie studios want the services closed and fined $150,000 for each illegally traded song or movie. Given the billions of files changing hands every week, the damages could be astronomical."
= fined $150,000 for each illegally traded song or movie.
damn that would be hella money... 900 x 150,000$ !!!
i agree with egan
yes defanitley i have maybe aout 1,000 some odd songs so i think that would be a great tool
