The numbers are in, and it turns out (not surprisingly at all) that the RIAA was full of shit the entire time. Sales are up, and P2P has helped them tremendously. Bastards.

After all his talk about fighting the MPAA, LokiTorrent has shut down. Taking with it not only the 50 to 100 grand that it raised to fight the MPAA but also giving away all it's logs, user data, and anything else it had to the MPAA so they could track down the people illegally downloading.

One of the last standing torrent sites, TorrentSpy, has a story on it here. Read the comments for more info. Or read the story here at

The RIAA has lost every lawsuit it filed in 2004. All you have to do is stand up to 'em, the law is on your side.

I know, I'm as shocked as you, but their latest CD comes infected with an anti-copying virus. Supposedly, the US and UK are distributing a non-virii-ridden version, but it's the principle that counts. This violates all KINDS of international anti-hacking laws, so let's hope they get buried under lawsuits.

Not content with asking for an arm and a leg from consumers and artists, the music industry now wants your fingerprints, too. The RIAA is hoping that a new breed of music player which requires biometric authentication will put an end to file sharing.

How far are we from needing a DNA test to listen to fucking Starlight Vocal Band? Stay tuned!

Oh, you couldn't be more wrong. In a recent interview with Frontline, David hit the nail SQUARE on the head, in regards to the music industry and the modern state of the musical arts:

"When it all started, record companies -- and there were many of them, and this was a good thing -- were run by people who loved records," he says. "Now record companies are run by lawyers and accountants. … The people who run record companies now wouldn't know a song if it flew up their nose and died."

The music industry's trade group has ended a program that offered to prevent people from being sued by recording companies if the downloaders admitted to illegally sharing music online... 1,108 people signed up for the program


It was sort of a sham from the beginning.

A recent Harvard-UNC study asserts that there is no negative correlation between trading MP3's and CD sales - in fact, downloading actually promotes more sales than it deters - so something else must be at fault... like perhaps criminalizing your customer base?

KORN has something to say about (and to) the record industry. Even though the lyrics have been censored, I'm betting this video doesn't get played on MTV.

In addition to placing a moratorium on taxing the internet and trying to keep tech jobs in the country, congress leveled a shotgun at the RIAA and emptied both barrels:

"That's not what the DMCA was intended to do. We can't be writing legislation that gives holders of certain types of intellectual property special rights... We can't carve out special legislation to give special powers to certain types of content." - John Sununu

"I don't agree you're going to get teen-agers and young people to believe they're doing something immoral [in file swapping]. The industry has to decide on a different model." - Joe Barton

Right the fuck on.

In a victory for Verizon and the privacy of Internet users, the D.C. Circuit Court today dismissed the recording industry's subpoenas for user identities. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has filed nearly 3,000 subpoenas in Washington, D.C., as a prelude to lawsuits against 382 alleged filesharers. The court today ruled that those subpoenas are not authorized by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

....with over 800 files saved to my dedicated 6 GIG "porn drive", the only deleting I do is to make room for new stuff. Yet the RIAA has successfully terrified millions of users into deleting ALL their music files. Meanwhile, I hear that compact discs are nearing obsolescence. Fact is, these RIAA Nazis are dying a slow death. So take heart, fellow pirates, and don't run off and start your own jug band just yet.

Just when you think the RIAA can't get any more draconian in their tactics, they are now doing unwarranted (as in, no warrant needed) search and siezure of NON-RIAA releases from independent record stores.

Hilary Rosen, former president of RIAA, was recently sued as part of RIAA’s anti-piracy campaign. She received a letter notifying her of the suit based on the presence of a Kazaa file share on her computer containing 2,110 downloaded songs.

In a stunning display of irony, the makers of KaZaa have just filed suit against the RIAA for copyright infringement, because they're using KaZaa's technology to track down offenders - in direct violation of their EULA.
