    Twimyo Jirugi Me, but not much could they sue you for?

    I'm lookin' at about $30 million.

    343,950,000. I have 2,293 songs in my main folder, unsure of the whole shebang.

    I'll take the 5th. (American answer....if you don't understand, stay up late and watch some old re-runs of Dragnet, Perry Mason, or Law and Order)

    Actually, I'm pretty well-behaved, download-wise. I'm a hobby-musician, know lots of folks who earn their living by their music, and my husband and I own a small book and music store, so I have a healthy respect for (and belief in) the copyright laws.

    I doubt the RIAA cares about Jpop, German industrial, Russian rap, and Dutch trance. I bet 90% of my music is not even American, but nonetheless, *knocks on wood* [​IMG]

    Oh, you'd be surprised. If the RIAA can sue a 12 year old girl, then I wouldn't be so sure. I just dont care, because I have no respect for the RIAA, MPAA or the SCA (that the right acronym?). There is no proof that p2p hurts sales at all. In fact, there is much more (and more reliable) proof that p2p helps the industry out, instead of hurting it. It might not make sense immediately, but go to, hang around for a few months, and you'll see what I mean. IMO the RIAA is just trying to milk this issue to line their own pockets. However, these days I guess it's easier for "us people" to lay low *searches shadows for ninjas* ;)

    bcullen They are all perfect.

    Collect this!

    They can sue, but can they collect? That's the question. :p
    You can't squeeze blood out of a rock ....unless you use it to bash someones skull in. :D

    I've had 900$+ owed to me (court judgment) for nearly a decade, winning the case is only half the battle. On a side note: Check credit references carefully before renting property. ;)
