What the RIAA and the MPAA need to do is, pull their collective heads out of their butts, and make concessions with the public. Find a happy median where they think it's fair, we think it's fair, and most importantly, lawmakers think it's fair. I agree that everyone should pay a price for copyrighted materials. But, I should not be forced to pay thousands for sharing. Maybe the cost of the song, album, and some reasonable lawyer fees with a small fine. No criminal charges. It amazes me that even the youth of America is being charged with felonies for stupid things. You're supposed to do stupid things as a kid, it's how they roll. Not shackling them with a record that follows them from childhood through their adult lives.
