    Well, there's no blood coming from that stone. Let's squeeze it a bit harder, perhaps.

    So the best way to solve a problem is to continue down a path that even the RIAA understand won't work? Wouldn't it make sense for the money spent on legal fees to go elsewhere? Like perhaps slowly updating the decades old viewpoint of some in the record industry?

    Alternatively, they could always write out a cheque for me.

    Seeing as how they [RIAA] have not offered a more meaningful alternative, nor come up with a business model that suits the consumer, what else can they? Apart from admit their current strategy is useless and simply pray on those that might actually cough up some ££ out of scare tactics...

    In case anyone hasn't queued in yet, brace yourselves for a torrent (figuratively) of DRM protection.

    The way I hear it most of the people when sued over it, settle out of court, for a good bit more than the music would have cost them legally, so chances are the legal crusade is making them money, even if it isn't neccessarily having much of an effect on piracy.

    Bladestorm has reached a valid conclusion.
    It may not work, but the love of money is too great for them to give up on it.
    On the other hand, YAY! They've admitted defeat!
    Not that I'm advocating piracy of course...:worried:

    I wonder what would work - changing the music industry so their income is from live appearances, and music is essentially share-ware? Of course, we're only about half a step away from the same situation with movies... I suspect cheap and convenient legal alternatives are going to be the best bet, although my idea of 'cheap' is about $20 per month for all the content I can download. What would you pay to have everything on your computer be legal?

    do none of u guys ever learn anything on business politics and marketing strategy? heck im an engineer graduate and i can still get it.

    yes, they (finally) acknowledge that it doesnt work, and frankly, i bet u they've known it for a long time. but yet, they're still doing it. its just now they decided to go public and says, yes, we know, and yes, we'r still doing it.

    why? it IS, "necessary in the bigger picture". i wont dwell on it further, but yes, i agree. think about it for a bit. to start with, try imagining that they NEVER try to pursue these pirates, then think that now they're saying "the best way to deal wit them is aggresive (marketing)" blablabla....

    its no brilliant strategy, but still a valid one.

    Everytime I see a news article about the RIAA pursuit of Piracy I get a mental image of Arthur from Monty Python and the quest for the holy grail. Galloping around with coconuts trying to rally people to their cause. You've gotta feel sorry for them. The're a laughing stock.:hehe:

    Who cares anyway, most music is rubbish, pushing some useless **** we don't need, or some whining kid going on about how he hates his parents and cant decide which cargo pants to buy. Ban music I say, increase the amount of prosecutions of down loaders, better still, reintroduce capital punishment for downloading music.


    btw I don't care
