    1. Do you know what you are talking about? :?: Where did you get that info from? Who was sent to jail for playing a MP3 file? Anyways how will RIAA/ Recording Industry know that you have MP3 files on your PC? Those bots you are talking about are installed with the help of your ISP to track something like kaazaa and are not present in windows media player.

    2. Ever heard about codecs? :confused:

    In the first place I DID NOT SAY anybody was imprisoned for anything! Please do not put words in my mouth, but yes, I am afraid that microsoft is trying to get technology into their player that can track you. even thjough it isn't available yet! Look aty what they have done with activation....something that was unheard of in the win 98 days.....
    Here are my specs:

    only if he understands :shrug:

    just chill man... a bit too much caffeine for one day, maybe?

    If you think M$ is so evil, why are you using it's OS? I'm no fan of M$ and I even think you're taking this a bit far...
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    first of all no one is stoppin to have an opinion and secondly please don't think that there is a flame war going on where you are being opressed b'cos you have a different point...NO...no one is doing it. even if someone is...you can simply ignore him.
    wat we are trying to make u understand is that you are saying THINGS that don't have any valid base or even existence on this earth.

    I am afraid that microsoft is trying to get technology into their player that can track you.
    you said that? didn't you? you have any proof of it or forget about proof...just tell us where you heard it? its just your imagination...isn't it?

    I just don't want to go to jail for playing an mp3 that I could already own but THE RECORDING INDUSTRY thinks it is illegal because they didn't take the time to check it out, rather relied on BOTS which have been known to mess up before ...GOT IT??
    you said that? didn't you? what is the meaning of that statement? at least i felt that you are saying that you can go to jail for playing a MP3 file. if i got a wrong impression, please correct me. i m always open for corrections and if i m not wrong then where did you get that idea from?

    In the end...yes there are thousands of boards on net where you can go but imho if you express your opinion in a board, you should be able to defend it with some valid points :cheers: : peace2:

    To tell you the truth, reading the posts back, I can see I have sounded a little paranoid! For that I apologise! I didn't mean to come off that way at all! What I was trying to say was that it just worries me when I see little things like DRM being put into players....not that they don't have a right to protect their property but because down the road a "little" thing could turn into a "big" thing and with it the potential for abuse. I guess the way that the RIAA is going after people, it would not surprise me at all if they tried to have talks with microsoft and others to be able to monitor who does what with whom in their softeware and not let anybody know about it! Look at how they have convinced the courts that a subpeona should just be filed by a COURT CLERK and not a judge or due process. But just WAIT until some child molester or murderer files one saying they are from the RIAA and obtains info about a person and they are harmed by the giving out of info that a JUDGE should do! THEN there will be hell to pay! But by that time, somebody could already be dead! BUT do you see the point I am making? It would have started out as a supbeona against filesharing, but could turn into something far more sinister!.(example: say an ex husband wanted to get ahold of his ex-wifes info to come to her house and kill her....well NOW all he has to do is act like he is from the RIAA and he could get her street address and phone number!) Something small turning into something big. Look at "remote assistance".... could that not be modified in a windows version to obtain info from somebodys computer without their knowledge?? Now I am not suggesting that microsoft is "big brother" or anything like that! If I belived that, I would leave them IN A HEARTBEAT! But I do see ways it COULD and I STRESS COULD be used for the wrong reasons. Mabye not DRM as we know it now, but something in the future that could make it possible to obtain information that was personal if the software were modified and all the time have people thinking that microsoft needed the info, but it was really being sent to another party! Again, I am not saying that it is that way now, I just worry about the potential for harm, not from DRM as it is, but mabye something launched from it.

    Webe3, thank you, thank, you, thank you....for finally calming down and making some good points. I actually agree with you! There is some room for abuse within DRM and WinMedia Player 9 such as what is done with the personal and system information that they can get, but just by being online you take the same risks. If you want to get REALLY paranoid, check this site out and read about what info you give out by just surfing. Good thing is, they also provide a lot of solutions.
    OK, I gotta ask....did you download codecs so you could PLAY your avi's? No one was bagging on you having an opinion, but the way you were stating them, it seemed like a rant, and you wanted PROOF from everyone else, but were unwilling to present any facts of your own or listen to anyone else. The loudest screamer doesn't win the debate. As for The_Tweaker....yeah, he likes to stir things up, and you fell right into it. The guy does know his stuff though. Tweaker... truce?:cheers: : peace2:
