    it'll never happen man. They might as well rule out warrants/probably cause/etc while they're at it. assuming every one of your inhabitants is stealing from you and blanket searching them is going to put them in a VERY unhappy place

    it's not about money, if you think it is then you are not looking at the bigger picture.

    it's about control of the internet....

    imo

    If they wanted control, they can have control whenever they feel...what's diffrent about the internet now then it was 10 years ago when napster started this ...less money, more free goods....u gotta remember for everything free that's given away, there no taxes paid on it..and the USA is PRO taxes so when u have all these consumers downloading movies, music, etc for free...who's pays the taxes on it NO 1 !! but the product was used, prior to that u had to go to the store and buy it and the store owners paid taxes on profits made at the end of the year. It's not about control its about MONEY wheres the money...the music industry went from a 20 billion dollar industry to a 10 billion dollar industry in just a few years if that's not a clear indication of less money being made and less taxes being paid then tell me what it is...but control is not the issue, our goverment already controls everything. In the blink of a eye they can say Hey u assholes we not using analog signals anymore...we using all digital. ooops they already did that.

    But, the key to the money, is control of the distribution. The internet market supports free file sharing, and that fundamental fact has obliterated the old school distribution busines model of the music labels. So it does come back to control.

    This is why my friends we must use heavy encryption:

    www.truecrypt.org

    tri-layer 256bit encryption :: dual layer volume :: whirlpool cipher

    SAY NO TO GOV. ENCRYPT YOUR HDD NOW

    Yes. and for free I LOVE IT!!!

    I have yet to find a comparable better paid program for years. In fact, most paid apps simly suck in comparison.

    I also like:

    Cintel Autocrypt, Mega Cipher, and a few others.

    EDIT: Just checked, compusec is still free. Use this link instead: http://www.ce-infosys.com/english/downloads/free_compusec/index.html

    *** I AM NOT AFFILIATED WITH ANY COMPANIES MENTIONED ***

    I HAVE USED ALL SOFTWARE MENTIONED AND GENUINELY LIKE & RECOMMEND IT TO OTHERS.

    Didn't everyone have about the same reaction to the Homeland Security Act? (Gub'mint's takin' my rights away!) That was in 2002, now half the ppl you talk to don't have a clue what it is.
    People have a short memory. It'll get signed into law, either in the middle of the night or tacked onto some other unrelated bill. They'll pop a couple of big players (guys with terrabytes of mp3's & dvd rips). It'll be all over the news for about 15 minutes and the next thing you know it's 2 years later and everyone's bent over and accepted it. Meanwhile the ppl who really want this stuff illegally will find a way as they always do and it will be business as usual.

    Just my 2 cents..

    I doubt they can pull it off without spending more than they would have lost if they hadn't

    Any source for that? Music industry sells millions of downloads and ringtones charging 2.99 per ringtone or song download!

    Just look at Soul;ja Boy. He sold Millions and Millions of ringtones and downloads..

    I don't believe the music industry is losing any money they are just getting greedier.

    I just starting using that. FEDS GOV can break that no problem, but do they want to take the time to break the encryption?

    But yea, this shit don't bother me. I'll just keep my 1TB hardrive unconnected to the internet

    Also the excuse for doing this was because "terrorist" are so called transmitting files through peer networks

    I used to record top of the pops when i was a kid, making sure i paused the tape when there was no music and quickly pressing record when a song came on...

    I was a 9 year old pirate in accordance with the law, but seriously I never had the money to buy music back then.. Does that make me a criminal?

    Since the high speed dubbing days ive made a point of buying anything ive downloaded and enjoyed. I dont believe in buying something your not sure about until you get home and find that you like 2 tracks and the other 15 are complete pants!

    The same goes for movies, I would feel completely robbed if i'd actually payed to go and watch some of the crap thats been released over the past years... that being said, I will buy every dvd ive watched and enjoyed as long as its on special of course!

    I guess the point im trying to make here is, there has been many dvd's music cds that I would never have watched or listened too if it wasnt available to download, and due to this my cd collection and dvd collection just gets bigger and bigger and all thanks to the availability on p2p...

    According to one study 70% of USA movies actually lose money. I wonder how much money gets laundered thru the show-biz industry. If you look at the movies being released, many of them seem predestined for failure right from the start.
