Same sh*t as the Pirate Bay turning into a paysite. Do you think all of the bittorrent and P2P guys are going to just decide to start paying for stuff they have been ripping for years? It’s like asking a rapist to start dating again so he can get consensual sex. I doubt it will really do much other than force the users to find another outlet for the content.
I know the RIAA and other people involved are thinking that they will eventually “clean up” all of the illegal ripping/ torrent sites and the users will be forced to pay one way or the other. IMO the real world says otherwise. Just like when the orig. Napster was folded up, some people thought that was the end of it and then came along torrent sites. Now that torrent sites are being shut down there will be another whole new crop of illegal file sharing to go around, especially since DRM is so 2 years ago as Debro put it. :).
The only control they have is bitchslapping the ISP’s when they find a bittorrent user and forcing them to turn off their service. IMO they will find another way, maybe like IP cloaking or proxy servers or something like that, they always will.
