    Yeah, like the artists, the labels, anyone could now sue you.

    This stops from the RIAA, not the Recording Industry. (Confusing eh?)

    :rolleyes: :mad:

    The problem is pricing. They don't need to charge that much to support themselves. I just bought a copy of the Matrix on DVD for $9 at Wal-mart. Why should I pay $20 for music that in many cases was produced by an artist who is dead?

    Jesus, do Americans ever stop suing each other??? :rolleyes:

    "I'll sue you! No! I'll sue you! No, I'll sue both of you!"

    If I lived in the states I'd defiantly become a layer, guaranteed endless work and $$$! :D

    I knew from the very beginning that it was a scam to get admissions from people downloading stuff. My dad just yesterday told me I should go ahead with this amnesty program. man it took me about tewnty minutes to end my spiel about the amnesty program being a scam....

    hopefully only a few people will fall into the trap of this amnesty thing :rolleyes:

    That is why I like to have Attorney's for clients. They never have slow times!

    Isn't it different in england? The way I understood it, if I sue you and you win, I have to pay your legal fees.

    I wish we went to that in the States. It is very inexpensive to sue someone, and that is why it happens too damn much.
