    Thumbs up Michael Jackson: Don't jail downloaders

    Michael Jackson says Congress should make no laws that could land music fans in jail for downloading songs illegally over the Internet.

    AHHH nevermind, I am no longer for free downloading music, I just changed my mind, Jackson should goto jail. Yes. That would solve the world's problems. Put him in jail, or put her in jail, or, hrm, put, ahh, put Jackson in jail. Yea, if we put. . . Jackson in jail the RIAA would not have any more problems, yea, let's do that.

    Though on the flip side it's cool to see someone standing up for the users. Even though it's Michael Jackson, it's a start. I mean hell they have Britney Spears doing ads about how downloading music is so "evil". It's nice to see a flip side...

    Ok I think that Mike on this one is right.

    Now he did say one other intelligent thing and that was...
    Drum Roll Please



    Damn I can't think of anything, BUt he did say it. LOL

    Know for the music thing this is getting outrageous first they wanted to ban it, then they wanted to destroy the computers of the people that did it. What next Firing squad.

    Come on the gvt. is taking this one way to serios.

    I totally agree. They are acting as if the people who use P2P software are actually bad ass hackers who are sitting there breaking into the DOD or something like that. Why does the RIAA have that much pull to actually be able to say they will go out and destroy people's computers who are using P2P software? That to me sounds like if a guy goes and robs a bank, yes he is doing wrong. But then in turn are you going to go burn his house down? Or not even a bank, most users on P2P are more like people who would go into a store a slip a CD out. Should they have their house burnt down because of it? Same thing here, it's property being destroyed. They do not know what could be on that computer, important medical documents, a thesis of a life's work. Sure the people are doing wrong, but don't totally go around trying to ruin people's lives. Then what happens to those people... the RIAA doesn't care as long as they get revenge on the people who took away their money. Sounds to me like some greedy blackhat hackers only worrying about themselves and no one else.

    I can't wait to see something online like the big thing with Metalica and Napster (Napster Bad... Money Good!)
