    Maybe the problem wouldn’t be such a big deal if they didn't charge $20 for a cd. I mean come on...it used to cost them what a dollar or two maybe to make a cd and they charged $15. Now it might cost them quarter or two and they are now charging $20. Greedy assholes.

    iggidy iggidy-xactly.
    if a cd was only 9 or 10 bucks, i'd buy it, but fuck spending 18 dollars on a cd that's gonna suck for the most part anyway.
    not only do record labels need to quit being fucking greedy, but they also need to quit signing bands that fucking suck, and if bands expect to make it, they need to not fucking suck themselves.
    artists whine because they cant eat of their music, well, thats because you music sucks you pathetic piece of shit. you got signed cause you had tattoos and a bad-hair-day that sony mistook for cutting edge style.
    get the fuck outa here with that shit.
    die, fucking die.

    seeks/oh, and while you're at it, die some fucking more!

    i just don't think it will pass...take, for example, kazaa, they can't shut kazaa down because most of their servers are in other countries...soulseek? well, soulseek doesn't have any servers blasting out music, it's literally peer-2-peer...i dunno, fuck metallica, fuck dems and the g.o.p. fuck 'em all.

    seeking, it's all about the pop factory...they try to turn out more sausage and hot dogs and forgot about the people that like pizza.
    weird analogy, but you get the idea...

    another fucking thing, is that i cant believe that this is even being fucking considered. jail time for exchanging songs? are you fucking kidding me? rapists get set free and people that trade music get sent to prison? i thought this was supposed to be a 'capitalist' society, i mean, thats how these companies are able to fucking rape everyone they come in contact with, yet they turn around and beg the government for legislation?! fuck you.
    seriously, shit like this makes me so crabby, but i also realize how powerless we are against it....which makes me want to break shit and shoot people in places of authority even if they have nothing to do with anything.
    ok, im gonna go get some food before i kick my monitor in.

    it's not even 'pop' music thats really the problem. that stuff is usually pretty consistent in quality. i mean, if you like one n'sync song, your gonna like them all. it's shit like fucking 'puddle of mud' and 'nickleback'. these bands that front like they're rock, or indy, or god knows what, but really are just piece of shit with stick on eyes and scarves like mr. hankie.
    fuck them.
    ok, food now, for real.

    that's the whole thing, seeking...those bands...nickelback, etc...they are all part of the pop factory, too. that's why they were signed...they had that "it" that "the kids just love"...
    ok, here's a personal example...311
    i used to love 311...i saw them in ATL alot when they just played hole in the wall clubs had the first two major label releases and some of their old demo's...good stuff...someone at the factory got ahold of them and they started changing around their third album. nick was being marketted to little higghschool girls and mtv picked up on that shit like it was a golden turd. 311 was forever ruined...i'm sure it went the same way with other bands...what was that one pop rock band that had that song about meth? holy shit, they had it bumpin' on mtv and the radio the whole time...it was catchy, but it was about doing a shit ton of crank...ha! they got one over on the pop factory...rambling again...damned hot and sour soup gave me a bad case of the shits and i'm trying not to think about it.

    i remember in the early 90's being able to pick up a CD for like 11 bucks.
    I don't see how they can justify charging twice as much now that the
    technology has become much cheaper in creating Cds. I really like the
    rage that you are feeling right now mr seeking. It gives me hope.

    perhaps jail time is out of the question for most. but i could see them slapping fines on people left and right. maybe repeat offenders would get some time.

    i dunno, i hope that shit doesn't make it through.

    They have to catch me first. Using proxy servers makes finding the source of a request a rather mundane task. They may catch a few people, but they will never catch everyone.

    You all want to know the answer to thwarting their effort? >>>>encrypted IP tunnels and VPNs
