That's millions of lawsuits.  Just don't see it happening.  Just a bluff.

well.. all the kids who use kazza & shit will start goin' down now. apparently according to this article, ISPs now have to identify users who they think are downloading mp3s & movies etc..

It'll never happen, No judge will sentence a kid to pay fines for mp3s, it's just not gonna happen.  MIRC's probalby untraceable anyways, everybody will just use it.

like ·SiNiStEr· said, they'll only go after the heavyweights. but it ain't bluffing though. i remember 1 or 2 months ago 2000 people were arrested in italy for sharing mp3s with p2p programs like kazaa.

But never got convicted because there are hunderts of rules to proof you innicent on mp3 sharing. Also Im pretty sure RIAA never won alot of cases.

i don't know if they were/are convicted or not. i do know that they had reasons to arrest those people. what they did is illegal.

The RIAA will go bankrupt 'cause of all the lawsuit expenses if they're really gonna do what they say, 'file "at least several hundred lawsuits" within eight to 10 weeks but --- continue to file lawsuits afterward on a regular basis.'

Just imagine - picking one person sharing mp3's on Kazaa or some shit, suing his/her ass and get money out their ass. Then look at the amount of people still using Kazaa - one guy is like a drop in all the seas and lakes and rivers found on this planet. So if they keep suin' people, they're up against an unbeatable foe - they can't possibly sue everybody who uses sharing programs to share mp3's. There's no - way - in - hell they can do that. Not the resources of the world could pay for that.

And the money amounts are just plain utopia - imagine paying $150,000 for every mp3 you got. Imagine paying even the minimum (of what they say) - $750 apiece. I ain't got a lot of mp3's - only 259 that weren't distributed on free downloadable mixtapes and even some of those I have the right to have as mp3's, 'cause I own the record the song is on. If they'd charge me the $750 apiece, I'd owe the RIAA $194,250. I'd manage get that much after my parents sell both our cars and our apartment. Basically, suing regular joes for such vast amounts of money is useless - they'll never get that money. (Although it's not money they want - they want to end piracy. But it's still useless.)

I'm not mad 'cause the RIAA has cooked up a plan like this - I'm mad 'cause the recording industry is ran by a bunch of idiots who actually think they can accomplish something like this. No wonder the music business is fucked up.

they ain't gonna sue anyone, lol.  It would cost them more then they would get out of it.  Think about, why do people d/l so much music?  Duh, cause they can't afford to buy.  So if they can't afford to buy a fucking cd, what are they gonna give the RIAA if they got sued?  Shit they could sue me for all the money they want, you think they are gonna be able to collect any?  Seriously, if anyone on this forum got sued for even $20,000, would you have that kind of cash lying around to pay it?  I know I don't, and I bet 99% of this forum doesn't.

Instead of sueing people all these workers for the big companies who are proberly on hundreds of thousands of pounds (dollars) a year should be trying to come up with a way to make money off us in some sort of other way.  Not in the way that you have to pay to download of sumit but maybe just a technique that wouldent loss them alot of money.  

I can't really put my finger on it but there must be a way to keep everyone happy.

3 students in Sydney Australia got busted for havin like 20gb of mp3s, they got a $60,000 AUD fine each

mIRC is the most traceable way, kazza & the rest would be a safer bet if you're gonna download. in mIRC, try typing /whois nickname and it'll show some shit like, user@ppp44.whateverisp.com .. everything after the @ is your host, ISPs keep track of that sort of shit, so when Agent Smith from the FBI calls up asking for some info, they hand it over

It's more difficult to trace that people are actually downloading too..
On Kazaa you can easily see almost everything if you wish, but I think you gotta start scanning for ports on IRC to find out anything..
And besides.. if they start fucking with IRC-people, the channel OPS can just start banning the federal/states IP-ranges..
