McCullagh of CNET recently wrote a post on his blog titled:Why the RIAA should have won (though the fine was too high)
The post is about the Recording Industry Association of America – RIAA, recent win of a lawsuit against a Minnesota woman accused of sharing songs through the Kazaa file-sharing network.
Declan, takes the position that the fine imposed was too high.
Let’s face it, we all knew that it would only be a matter of time before the record and movie industries started cracking down on the common everyday sap.
This poor woman is just paying the price for being stupid. In fact, according to studies many of us, especially teens are being stupid every time we make our music available on a peer to peer site.
This is just the Recording Industry Association of America – RIAA, the big boys finally making good on their threats to bring the full weight of the law down on scofflaws.
Don’t get me wrong, I for one firmly believe that if I buy something, whether it is a CD or DVD it should be mine and I should be able to do whatever I want with it. Unfortunately, the law says otherwise.
My suggestion for anyone who does not like the law is simply this… Make them change it, don’t buy the music, don’t buy the movie.
We spend billions, maybe more on CD’s and DVD’s and the best way to tell them no is to show them. But, herein lies the problem… How do you organize such a movement? How do get the masses to work together?
It’s difficult enough to organize the people in you neighborhood to have a successful block party. Imagine what it would take to achieve something of this proportion.
Until someone finds a way to make it happen remember… Play With Fire, Get Burned!
