    Some of the world's biggest record companies facing rampant online piracy are quietly financing the developement and testing of software programs that would sabotage the computers and internet connections of people who download piated music, according to the industry executives.
    The record companies are exploring the options on new counter-measures, which some experts say have varying degrees of legality, to deter online theft: from attacking personal internet connections so as to slow or halt downloads of pirated music to overwhelming the distribution networks with potentially malicious programs that masquerade as music files.

    mmmm, in my opinion is better that "they" go for "pay to listen" or something like that, you know buy songs on-line, instead of begin to hunt people.

    And what about if I want to listen the song before I buy the disc??? Sometimes I do that...

    The record companies should think better, before applying their "solutions"

    I have been watching the Music Industry Regime's attempts for years now. So far they are 0 for 18 in their attempts to stop or even hinder online music, and as for this 'attempt'... BRING IT ON.

    The Regime is dying a slow and painful death, and one day, may actually have to get REAL jobs.

    This regime has been allowed to exist for long enough! It is time the artists are given back their freedom !! 7.5 cents per CD is FAR too little money for all that the artists do, and that is the US average.

    The Average music artist recieves 7.5 cents PER CD SOLD, so load up KaZaa Lite and fight back the oppressors who have censored your music for the past 80 years!

    The music industry Regime HAS CENSORED your music. Madonna was refused by all record labels 3 times EACH before she was signed. Willie Nelson was refused by record labels for 20 years straight. And these stories are common! Just think the artists we MIGHT not have HAD!! AND THINK OF ALL THE ARTISTS WHO NEVER WERE accepted due to the REGIME's BRUTAL CONTROL!!!

    Once the music industry regime has fallen, we will be free to pick our own artists, because it will be easier for them to compete and sell their own CDs (at a higher profit per cd), and then our dollars will democratically choose the musicians of the future.

    Radio stations will be able to play the music that their listeners request! And not just "the new crap" 5 times a day. No Longer will radio stations be under the direct control of the "MUSIC INDUSTRY REGIME"

    So arm yourselves! Get P2P, or Copy them over your network, or take your iPOD to your buddies House, burn them to mp3 cd's and hand them out. Whatever it takes! The quality of music depends on it! THIS REGIME WILL NOT LAST!

    I dont think that they will get anything good done, as I can see someone sueing them because they lost all their data while downloading the "pirated" music.

    I have never downloaded a song that I did not have permission from the artist to download. I have all of my cd's ripped to my hd as mp3s. I do not use any p2p services. But I can only hope that somehow this destructive crap from the RIAA gets on my machine and damages my files. I would try to sue the *******s for millions. I have boycotted buying new cds for quite some time now as a protest to their Gestapo tactics. As I write I am listening to internet radio. There is enough music available to meet my needs without my financing their BS with cd purchases. I don't advocate piracy. Find alternatives. Every dollar spent on new cds adds to their war chest.

    Another weapon that they're using is the CDs which can be recognize by the computer...

    Damn...what if my computer is my multimedia center??? Do they ever think??

    Like bigjackusa I had ripped almost all my cds, I don't like to put a CD every time I want to listen to music, is more practical to have them in HD.

    Do you talk about CD unreadable by computers???

    I have see only one CD...actually one with the legend "No compatible with computer" (Something like that).

    Something good about this, is that a mechanism developed by Sony:?:, I guess a zero track, could be "hacked"...with a simple text marker (the permanent ones). :geek: :wow:

    I guess is the only way they learn...

    But....

    They never learn
