    What's sad to me is how few of us who get music online *legally* and don't use gnutella type services on principle (or did for a brief time, and stopped for reasons of principle) support these lawsuits.... There are people who oppose them and believe for whatever reason that they're entitled to free copies of copyrighted music, and there are people who support legal online endeavors but oppose these lawsuits as heavy-handed, but outside of the RIAA, who is actually a fan of these tactics??? :mad:

    I think its a bad idea to sue blindly. It doesnt matter to the RIAA if the person they are suing is the person who did the crime. And to be falsely accused of something is very expensive. You have to hire an attny at a great cost to you and your family.

    Duh! Can't imagine why they wouldn't have done a more thorough investigation prior to filing the lawsuit. Thought there were investigations an serving of papers as part of the process. :eek:
