    Why wouldn't it be. But what I want to know is who gave the music industry the right to enforce the law? That's just all kinds of ****ed up.

    Someone needs to put a big impersonating law enforcement officers smackdown on the music industry.

    I'd be suing their asses off right now.

    This isn't really all that new. The software industry's version of RIAA does stuff like this in America all the time.

    I myself don't think Sharman Networks will take this...at least not anymore. It should be time they really start fighting back. Probably with one hell of a Lawsuit...somehow... I dunno how they will be able to file one, but they probably will Find Away.

    If they tried to force their way into my home and they weren't legal law enforcement with legal permission they'd find a bullet in their heads, just like any other criminal that breaks into my home.

    And I don't even have any of their mp3s. :-D

    this is absolutely ridiculous. The RIAA is really playing with fire now.. if they continue on this trend, the mass public is going to erupt, and those top exec's are going to be looking for new jobs.

    Just the rich trying to get richer at their the people who put em there's expense.

    It's not the RIAA, people. It's the Australian equivalent, the ARIA. They have their own different laws. And they apparantly permit corporate vigilantism.

    Perhaps Sharman Networks should hire their own goons to go over to the ARIA's offices and rough them up a bit.
