Yes in Finland now you cannot even discuss DRM matters! This is an outrage. :frowning:

The more the music industry sues, abuses and attempts to inflict virus programs on their customers, the fewer customers they will have in the end. Will they ever learn? Probably not. Hit them where it hurts and the only thing they care about - their purses - stop buying their products completely. Let them whine forever.

Can somebody explain to me, how a lobby group can sue someone on someone else’s behalf?

"Yes in Finland now you cannot even discuss DRM matters! This is an outrage. " For a country that historically has held a healthy and active hatred of all things invasive and totalitarian for so long, that is indeed a sad state of affairs. When did you lose your way? The Russians didn’t get you but the RIAA sure did.

you can sue anybody, won a case is another matter!

Actually getting money or anything else after a judgment is yet another matter in civil cases. You don’t want to give, not much they can do about it except the obligatory threat letters in the mail. This why we have trash can’s :B

It seems to me that it is the thinking of dinosaurs that an industry can sue its customers and stay in business. :r
