    Can you get around the RIAA

    The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has now filed suets against 261 people, including a 12 year old girl, for P2P file sharing. Is there anyway to use sites like BearShare, Win MX, eMule, etc..., without fear of repercussions? Since I am a novice at all this, I see no way to log onto these type of sites without revealing your IP address. However, I'm sure there are people out there, all over that have already figured it out.

    Another question I have is, how can they regulate the sharing of files that are done from another country, when the DEA can't even crack down on drug sales from out of US pharmacies?

    I would appreciate any thoughts on the matter.
    Thanks

    http://www.kazaalite.tk/ Kazaalite has a list of RIAA (and other organizations that are out to get you) IP addresses which it blocks them from downloading from you. There was also a discussion about Earthstation 5 (http://www.earthstation5.com/chronicles.html) and how it was pretty good at blocking attempts to trace it.

    Edit: It was talked about here: http://www.antionline.com/showthread...thstation+five

    This is a site that is anti-RIAA, and gives you a way to see if you are on the list of people who have been subpeonaed and the best ways to avoid being subpeonaed. May not be fool-proof, but it's a good place to start.

    Just let me point out that although music shareres don't consider themselves guilty (and in my opinion they aren't guilty of any crime), they have had an adverse effect on the Music Industry. Many labels are dropping their albums' list prices, some down from $20 to $12. It's a hefty drop, but it's supposed to regain control of sales, which if you're wondering have dropped 10 percent because of file sharing (http://news.com.com/2100-1027_3-996205.html)
    so yeah.

    Later,

    LoZond: The site she posted was the Electronic Frontier Foundation which is dedicated to "Defending Freedom in a Digital World" they are not RIAA owned.

    They defend privacy and your rights in this digital world we live in...

    I wonder if the RIAA has any concept that what their doing doesn't matter. Laws are made by people. Eventually the issue of file sharing is going to end up in the supreme court and the majority of justices are going to agree that they liked downloading their favorite country song. They will determine file sharing is legal, and then the RIAA is realy screwed. No matter what happens, file sharing will never stop, wether it is ethical or not.

    And also, why would the RIAA be knocking on your door if you join an organization that was against it? Nothing illegal about that, you know.
