RIAA orders ISP to reveal client info

The RIAA recieved a court order to force ISP Verizon to reveal the identity of a client who downloaded 600 songs in one day. Verizon is seeking an appeal to the decision and refuses to violate their customer's privacy.

The RIAA is getting out of hand. I don't care how many songs he downloaded, Verizon has a right to withhold his identity if they want.

i hope verizon takes this all the way to the suprime court... i hate invasion of privacy. which is what this is. what a joke... i mean, verizon is just doing it because they know how many customers will immediately switch if they fork over the info, but i still have to give them snaps for withholding.

the RIAA needs to find an alternative that consumers will adapt, something as easy as downloading music but cheap enough to be viable. Maybe it will never happen. But the RIAA can kiss my ass if they think they're gonna pull this ****.

they've refused the government's aid in fighting this crime, so to hell with them if they want to use law enforcement's technique of nabbing customer records.
