Thanks to the RIAA the Numa Numa guy is copyright infringing!!

I can't wait until the RIAA says the Radio is making the artists lose in sales.

This is something I can laugh at about the RIAA!
They have went to far and need somebody to make them hush.

Well at least the person isnt dead there suing this time.

:thumbsup: If I had $35,000 laying around I sued them, just to prove a point and get them to shut up. They are too greedy for there own good.

If I make Presidient... which is only in my dreams... I will forever rid the US of the RIAA.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

Wow. Looks like Microsoft finally found a rival for stupidity. :thumbsup:

Seriously though, this is going waaaaay too far. Next thing you know, Ill be at home listening to a cd that I bought with my own money, and if a family member in the next room can hear it, then its breaking the law, since THEY didnt buy the cd.

Or if youre in your car with someone listening to your cd, its breaking the law, since the other person didnt buy the cd themselves.

And what about those MP3 players that can record music from the radio? It will just be that XM thing all over again.

I MEAN COME ON!!!!! This is :flowers:-ing stupid!!!!!! Who knows how long it is until the radio becomes illegal? :trumpet:

Enjoy your music while you can.....

Well I can't wait until the Radio is considered to be illegal. THe artists don't get paid for everytime a single person listens to a song on the radio....

Oh and in unrelated news:

No Driving While iPodding

Once a city or state has made it illegal to drive and talk on a mobile, what are they to do if the statistics show that the law doesn't make people safer? One possibility is that governments could realize that trying to codify good habits is bound to fail, but the more likely reaction is that politicians will just look for the next distraction to legislate away. Enter the iPod. Despite the fact that no evidence exists suggesting that mp3 players contribute to accidents, the Canadian Automobile Association is urging all provinces to ban their use in cars. At the moment, no proposed legislation is in place, but it already seems like an eventuality that such a ubiquitous device will be targeted.

Crazy, simply crazy. Someone needs to sue the RIAA for all that they're worth, and then some. Shut them up forever. It must be nice to be going around, suing dead people, demanding to examine peoples hdd's, taking elderly grandmothers to court with claims of downloading music from the internet only to find out that the grand mother has an old Apple that doesn't support P2P software (yes, charges were dropped) and threatening people to pay them money or they'll take them to court, which in itself should be illegal. RIAA.....grrrrrrrrrr.
War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.

I'm just a caveman. I fell on some ice and later got thawed out by some of your scientists. Your world frightens and confuses me! Sometimes the honking horns of your traffic make me want to get out of my BMW.. and run off into the hills, or wherever..
from "Caveman Lawyer" SNL


Would the Fine "powers that be" in Canada please explain the difference between listing to MP3's and the radio? the one that came with the car or any of the aftermarket replacement units that are MP3 compatible ?

In addition to the radio, I predict that DVR technology will be outlawed as well. *insert sarcastic voice* After all, we don't want people recording movies and music videos off of tv! Who cares if they are at work and want to watch it later? They are violating the law by recording copyright material!!!! */sarcastic voice*

The Riaa (and the Mpaa) need to get a clue. :thumbsup: Besides...isn't threatening people to pay them or go to court extortion? And isn't that illegal as well? :flowers:

IF it isn't illegal it should be. Scaring your customers into paying is just going to drive them further away.
