The RIAA wants you!

Do you trade music through filesharing online? If so the RIAA now has a new legal precedent to bring charges against you. As another sign that 1984 is approaching, a judge in Washington has ruled that Verizon Internet must divulge the account name of a subscriber who used their backbone to download songs using Kazaa. The RIAA and the Republican controlled government are teaming up to put an end to the notions of public domain and fair use. The recent decisions in the Supreme Court and this right-field interpretation on the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act put control of innovation, adaptation, and individual rights squarely in the hands of a few needy… I mean greedy corporations.
