This is such a delicate situation.. It's basically a revolution vs. resolution type argument.
RIAA (less so the MPAA) has and is using underhanded tactics to desperately try to keep it's monopoly intact. No matter if they are successful or not, the end-user and the artists suffer (artists getting $1-$2 per $17 record? come on).
The MPAA isn't as bad, as they allow things like netflix which are reasonable prices, and clearly James Cameron is hurting in his cash flow. Still, there are some things that need to be changed here.
It's obvious that the RIAA needs to be stopped, but is this the right way? In all likely hood, this is going to end up bad for both sides - but if it leads to change, it's justified right?
"313 service interruptions and 123 hours of downtime. ACS:Law, the second most affected, experienced the largest bulk of downtime at 179 hours, with 152 separate service interruptions. The RIAA has been down for 127 hours and the MPAA for 23 hours."
Why don't the create a DDoS client like SETI so as everyone to voluntarily run it? This client can also run on some machines as mailware so as not to accuse users of intentionally attacking those b#$rds!
