    Meh! Spend XXX billion euro on monitoring and everybody just switches to encrypted p2p.

    IFPI, RIAA and the likes are as said using a "sledgehammer aproach". It will cost ISPs billions and billions but will not make the slightest dent in p2p activity after just a few months.

    Someone really needs to take IFPI and Co. to school. It's sad when a bunch of old crippled and angry men have the power to cripple everybody else because they are lost in their ways.

    Sad sad sad.

    I would gladly work for IFPI and RIAA as an advisor so they would know how to NOT waste their and everybody elses time. Anything is better than the wreckless lawsuits and lobbying.

    Poor old fools. Lost in the stone age of technology.

    The only difference between now and before, is the Internet appears to be police-able. Even at 21, I can remember taping songs off of the radio. Taping films off of the TV. Sure, my old man had paid the TV license, but that didn't make it legal.

    I shouldn't worry. I say keep it up - what're they going to do, put us all in jail? Ohh laugh it up. It's a fantastic candidate for anarchy, as we've already seen.

    Where do these 'alliances' get their money from? From record/movie sales! What we have here is nothing more than the cries of an industry seeing itself sink into financial oblivion, because the greedy *******s at the top don't know why they're there in the first place. This stinks of desperation. Nothing more.

    We all know that they can't see passed their own noses; we're all laughing.

    Bottom line is, there is always going to be piracy. But until they realise that the future is in digital distribution, with a wide variety of choice and quality, then piracy will continue to rise, not fall.

    A very simple question: When was the last time you 'stole' a game available on Steam? It's just too simple to get what you want, and where you want it, with little-to-no wait. It's not perfect, but it is the future. Competition will only see that improve! ;)

    Media saturated world wants $ for media... saturated world is dealing with media....

    Its like getting cable, then complaining to the provider that you are getting commercials, then demanding that they remove the commercials cause your paying for it.

    Stupid crap I tell....

    Under UK law it is illegal to intercept and listen to transmissions not intended for you, which is why it is illegal to listen in on other peoples mobile phone signals, in fact its also illegal to listen in on Police radio transmissions, and communications between pilots and Air Traffic Control. Although no one bothers to enforce it.

    The same should apply to the internet.
