    The RIAA doesn't care about that, only leeching as much money as possible for themselves... take this for example:

    i would rather run without AV to be honest

    this guy has no clue tho why would i need a decoder on an MP3 they could only force the encoder on Legit stuff which they shouldnt be checking for anyway all this could possible do would be to stop people transfering Legit music accross PCs which would mean no playback in different rooms of the house the guy is a F@@@Tard

    Thanks, I needed a reminder as to why I switched to linux!

    Seriously, why shoudl AV manufacturers, or for that matter OS manufacturers piss off their customer base to pander to an industry that creates no revenue for them?

    Whatever this guy is smoking, I want some.

    Yeah at that point i'd just install linux. There'd be a distro out there that wouldn't have any filtering.

    Also how would the software be able to tell the difference between personal rips and stuff distributed over the internet without adding a load of bloat to the file structure or inventing a whole new codec that no one would use.

    You wouldn't have to install Linux, in 5 mins it would be circumvented by the hackers and we can all live happily ever after

    Well, if it goes thru, then it sets a horrific precident and is yet another piece of personal freedom and liberty eroded away.

    Someone should make a timeline of all RIAA's stupid ideas, miserable failures, lost cases and outright insults to both musicians and listeners.

    Stuff like this is important to document, so we can teach our kids in school to learn from past mistakes.:thumb:

    This just wouldn't work. It would require a new platform of bit torrent clients with this encryption built in. Current technology already circumvents this problem so why would people move to this crippled version of bit torrent. The RIAA really are idiots.

    In some respects, this sounds a bit like spyware (or equivilent of)

    Oh, I see. If the RIAA has it its way, antivirus/antispyware software would become spyware itself!

    What's next? Will they send an agent to every home and office to look over your shoulder, to make sure you are listening only to RIAA-approved-proprietary-encrypted-file-format on RIAA-approved hardware and software?

    Agreeing with everyone else that's said it - If it crops up in Windows, I can see a mass migration to Linux. I'm not interested in spyware when it's free, let alone paying a company to give it me.

    Besides, wouldn't it be easier to hook a linux box to your sound equipment and do your illegal on that, using a completely clean Windows/Mac environment with only legal music?

    Bunch of colossal morons.
