Want to do the right thing but what the heck?!!?!?

OK I admit it. I have an *** load of pirated music. Mainly because I don't have the cash to buy full albums. I'm been trying to make good by replacing the MP3's I have with legit iTunes copies. So far I've spent $400 in rectifying this situation but its frustrating as HELL to see LARGE gapes in iTMS's library. Obviously this isn't the fault of Apple. I have to question if the freaking music industry is serious about trying to get people to go legal. I mean the RIAA instead of trying to push the use of online music has gone after 500 more file swappers online. WTF?!?!
These morons need to keep their eye on the prize. Namely getting people to give up file swapping and the ONLY way this is going to happen is to get a robust library on the various music services. Suing the crap out of people is counterproductive dang it! When is the music industry going to get its collective head out of their ***?!?!

Sorry. I'm guessing most of this is obvious but I had to vent.
-iPod Video 160GB
-MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo 2.33Ghz/3GB RAM/250GB

-Newton 4700 (a.k.a iPaq 4700)
