GristyMcFisty: Give me that mic, you petty excuse for an officer! Ludicrous speed! CrabbyAppleton: Don't consider yourself a customer fan base if you have finite wealth. I'm sure they wouldn't. Dentman42: Forget the boycott. The only people you'd hurt are the artists since the big 5 have control over money flow. The RIAA isn't going anywhere. AFAIK, they are a non-profit group supported by tax money. so they are here to stay as long as you pay taxes. But I could be wrong. Kiron: that should make you happy. Since you seem well educated in P2P info, you shouldn't have anything to worry about. right? MLS: You nailed it perfectly. Sherriff: We do have a legal right to make backups. If companies impose copyright restrictions, we should be able to circumvent those to make backups. Either that, or the companies must replace and damaged media at their expense, so questions asked. I agree with fair use totally. kwkard: im not sure u can bankrupt them. but Im not 100% sure. jab1981: yes, 2 wrongs dont make a right. if you believe the RIAA is in the wrong, vigilante justice is not the way. Sharing is wrong. In the physical sense, it's handing a CD to someone, so they can use it. and you can use it only when they give it back. It really has to do with one person has control over an object at a time. Strongbad: you are right. Theft and copy right infringement are 2 different things. Your point?
