    i love it...what did they think allofmp3 was going to do...fly on over to new york with a check???!?!?!?!? geez these people really need to get a grip on reality. if i was them i would work with the Russian government to get the royalty funds already set aside to the authors instead of trying to get their way. i swear, the system is already there and allofmp3 is following the law of the country in which it operates. man some idiots have too much power & time on their hands... :grr:

    Well, I guess I could, but I have never used AllOfMP3 or had use for such a site. I just think it's rather... interresting, that a private company can dictate what the Danish people can and cannot access on the internet. That acutally scares me a bit, 'cause if they could, what's to stop the next company from file suit and get something else banned?

    I still think The Pirate Bay's response was funnier, about how Sweeden isn't in the US, and how US laws don't apply there...

    If it wasn't such a waste of money I think AllOfMP3 should counter sue (for slandering their name) and ask the judge (Dr Evil style) for a bazillion dollars - that's right judge - write it down: a "Bazillion" dollars :idea: make that a bazillion dollars and a pony.

    How on Earth did the RIAA come up with the value of $1,650,000,000,000 :confused:

    Wow... Thats insaine. Im just worried that even if this site doesnt get destroyed, then it might get blocked from American isp's. That would suck.

    Now theres someone who knows how politics work and how to get things done. However they need to buy off more congressmen then they currently have.
    Same thing I was wondering.

    I'm assuming it's their usual $2.99 per track - .01 * tracks sold.

    Plus I love how ISPs are blocking access to the site. Freedom of speech? Hardly.

    Well, we now know for sure that all that "stolen" money isn't going to the musicians ;)
    And I'll bet you they'll lose from the Russians as well, hehe.

    One thing though... does anyone know whatever happened to that millionair that was
    sued by the RIAA (or was it MPAA?), which on his turn, said he'd throw in millions
    just to prove their wrong and make sure they learned a lesson?

    Every time I read another thread about the RIAA it makes me laugh.

    When will they realise that they can't stop filesharing.
    DRM is nothing but a hinderance to people who actually buy CDs.
    All their heavy-handed bully-boy tactics is just costing them a fortune in legal fees and gifting massive publicity to sites like allofmp3.

    If someone could just sit them down and appeal to their greedy side (which it seems is the only trait they have) and explain that if they fired all the lawyers and paid developers to develop a way of embracing the new filesharing system(s), they'd be making waaaaay more money.

    Why do they think allofmp3 is so popular anyway?

    And yeah, what did happen with the RIAA lawsuit on that millionaire? :D

    RIAA dropped the case so a legal precedent would not be achieved i believe

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaa lol :D :D

    Uh dear, that was good.


    Seriously, how else does the US figure it's going to pay out for pensions in the near future? It's got to find money from somewhere. Why not just sue the world for sharing the same air as its intellectual properties?
