Cool RIAA & MPAA Blocked




Check it out: Techfocus.org is blocking MPAA & RIAA from their site and is encouraging others to join their cause. Read why and tell us what you think.








(Note: the above graphic, albeit annoying, was linked solely for fun. Turcic.com is not currently blocking mpaa or riaa ip's from this site.)

Sweet.

I have a Tivo and I love giving shows I dislike the Thumbs Down. Feels good to give the RIAA and the MPAA the finger.

I take it back.

Turcic.com is proudly banning MPAA & RIAA IP's with a furious rage.

Concerned that information about your file-sharing username may have been subpoenaed by the RIAA?

Check here to see if your username or IP address is on one of the subpoenas filed with the D.C. District Court..........

Also this site was set up by EFF I wonder if RIAA will do the same and just log the data users type in. Let´s hope that RIAA won´t gain access to EFFs Database.

Writing on your Palm explains very nicely why the proposed laws against file sharing won't work.

That was a good article TadW, thanks for sharing. Ever since the onset of digital music back in the mid 90's, it was apparent that the industry was at odds on how to deal with it.

They've been obvious losers from the beginning, but this vast litigation strategy is really going to blow up in their faces.


Cool new tool: RIAA Radar. Find out if your song is in "violation".

Well this one is hillarious:

The RIAA sees the face of evil, and it's a 12-year-old girl and the follow-up .
Quote:
Apparently, young teens hit the copyright infringement scale at the $2,000 mark. College students, by contrast, must cough up between $12,000 and $17,000 for their violations, as we saw earlier this year. So any parents out there with children under 12 can expect their precious tots' crimes to cost around $1,000. That's comforting.

You may have seen the PR tact they're taking to quash this story (and others like it) on the NBC Nightly News last night.

RIAA did a demo for a bunch of Legislative Aides on Capital Hill the other day of Kazaa (and let's be honest here, most of these folks were probably file-swappers themselves or had some experience with it...the average LA is between 25 and 35).

RIAA's point was that p2p services are breeding grounds for smut, and when 12 yo's look up 'Britney Spears', they're more than likely going to get back something naughty in their search results -- oftentimes mislabeled -- so you're version of "Oops I did it Again" is "Oops, what the h*!! did I download?!"
