    My Question is how can they tax recordable media (CD-R/RW and DVD R/RW) when millions of people use them for legitimate purposes? I thought they already had 'Music CD-R's which you would pay extra for that would go to the RIAA. I think that after the RIAA gets their first victory they are going to run with it as far as they can go...cutting off everything they can everywhere no matter how legal it is. We shall see. We shall see.

    Sue them all to hellllllll....

    Arg, P2P has many legit uses.

    Distributing freeware software can be done legally.

    They shouldn't be pentalized.


    But they are gonna keep asking for a appeal until supreme court.
