Let's say the user isn't technically capable of doing that AND the source has legally obtained their MP3's.
(Believe me - I'm not supporting file swappers!).
But, my point is exactly that, MA: gray areas. AND going after a 12 yr old girl isn't worth it to me, terrible PR already causing a backlash.
someone said 'the internet doesn't waiting for anybody' - it didn't wait for the RIAA to utilize the internet to better their industry. They
missed out and along came napster and the rest of them. Had they realized what a vehicle the Internet was and thought up something like napster, where
they can generate money, this wouldn't be a problem. Instead, they push talent-less artists and gouge us when we go buy a CD. They should have
thought something like itunes long ago and lay off 12-year-old girls because they're starting to do their industry a disservice, imho.
