I would say this is very cool if the target was bigger and better then a website,even though it is the RIAA, but maybe next time whoever did this will think bigger.i can hope right? But i want to know from you guys, do you think that what the RIAA is doing is right? Or are you supportive of music piracy? what ever your two cents is, id like to know.

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), together with federal law-enforcement officials, is investigating the hacking of its Web site over the weekend.
The site, which was knocked out on Friday, will remain down for the "next day or two," according to a source familiar with the situation. An RIAA spokesperson says the FBI and Secret Service are assisting in the investigation. "How pathetic that those who want free music don't believe in free speech," she says.
This is not the first time the RIAA site has been hacked. Last summer, the site was attacked the day after Rep. Howard Berman (D-Calif.) introduced legislation that would give copyright holders leeway to thwart infringement on peer-to-peer networks by using measures such as interdiction, file-blocking, and spoofing.
