Slashdot | Court Action Does Not Reduce File-Sharing

In related news scientists have confirmed that the earth is indeed round.

I'm glad that people share the idea that I have (reference to most of the comments left). I simply do not want to support a company that is completely and utterly evil. Here are a couple comments from that page that I really think fit:

Unlike some people, I have NO problem with the music they produce. I'm one of those losers that like Green Day. I like mainstream music like Dashboard Confessional, Fall Out Boy, or even Justin Timberlake. Big fucking deal. Sue me.
However, I can't buy msuic from them on principal. Just like I wouldn't buy blankets from the online Al-qaeda shop, I can't buy music from them. Yes, an extreme example but it lays out my point in black and white:
I don't buy things/support people/companies I think are "true evil".
I don't buy from Walmart, I don't buy music from the RIAA, and I don't buy ten year old girls from the local human trafficker.

I would have thought with the high standards employed by the RIAA in its lawsuits, it would intimidate anyone out of file-sharing. (View Links: Link 1 - Link 2 - Link 3) --RandomPrecision

Suing people tends to piss them off, making them less likely to buy from you. --Pantero Blanco

"The International Federation of the Phonographic Industries (IFPI) said it was 'containing" the problem and more people were connecting to broadband."
Who cares what they say, nobody uses phonographs anymore. And we thought the RIAA had an outdated business model.

If by "new and flexible", he means, "irritating and tedious", then no- I don't think DRM is misunderstood at all! --deep44

.....Just how outlawing liquor in the 30's made it more popular than ever. --ztwilight

Whats the point though, why all this fus, it's just people trying to share enjoyment. It's not like money makes people happy, if the artists are good then they sell tickets, that's where the real money is. --eneville
