1.) RECORDING as in in music, not copy protections.

3.) As stated before CDFreaks is 100% legal, so there isn't anything to sue over.
Bloodstar, CDFreaks also handles audio copy protections in the "Audio Forum".
Even though CDFreaks servers are not located in the US, US intellectual property could still be copied with info from it. (Back to the silly argument about whether the gun or the wielder killed the person) Just like Bill Gates going after China and the Far East because even though Windows comes from the US, it is also being copied elsewhere.
You don't have to have anything to sue over. RIAA could just get a bunch of lawyers, string together a fairy tale and then sue. By the time CDFreaks settles one appeal after another, its finances will be in shambles. A big corporate entity like RIAA can afford to write off such legal expenses with their hedge funds. It is pocket change to them. But for CDFreaks, it will be the difference between floating and sinking.
All that said, Chrisi is right, RIAA probably don't do that because they have bigger fish to fry (the illegal websites) or the small fries (old ladies with below-legal-age kids who don't know what they are doing is wrong), as we can see from recent news articles .
Works well for us
