riaa, file sharing and interesting things

Hi all.
Last week file sharing laws came into force, well the actual date is september.
3 strikes and you g3et 15000 fine and banned from the net for 6 months I think.

Anyway You all know the opinion I have on this.
go and check out my livejournal at http://compguru-1.livejournal.com
or http://m.livejournal.com/read/user/compguru-1.
or _1 I am not sure on what lj does to things.

Anyway you will probably gather I think its a step backwards.

However I now find that law is to be a bit shakey.
If you go to www.riaa.com and check out their legal sites amongst yahoo, aol, and amazon you find.
Bareshare, imesh and youtube.

Excuse me?
Hold on, downloading is alegal yet these are free.
Youtube obviously has other content free besides music so maybe thats why its free.
But the rest.
Imesh and Bearshare are both file shareing networks.
Hold on riaa you mean I can download all I want from imesh and bareshare and its ok, or zune or youtube and its ok.
If this is the case then you have lost.
Oh myspace music is also free mostly.
I don’t get where you stand.
Its alegal to get stuff from sharing networks.
But I now can say when I get a notice I got stuff from bareshare.
This defeats the law totally.
There is no way you can legally have control over a couple networks which are previding free legal songs and stop the rest.
Heck I could set my own pirated network up and say it was all legal and free and it would probably be accepted.
If you are gona do it then fucking do it right!
I hope this is not to strong but really I now wander what it is all about.
They acknowledge that digital downloads exist from some networks but still want to sell their cds.
When this law comes up I plan to signup to one of these so called legal networks and see what happens.
I am on zune as it is.

Be Sociable, Share!
