A US COURT is forcing the Recording Industry of America to explain why it charges people it catches pirating $750 a single rather than the 70 cents they flog them to retailers for.

Could it be that the RIAA Nazi's are seeing this as another revenue stream????



Lindor could also prove that the RIAA was only out of pocket by 70 cents a single and not $750.

Why do the RIAA Nazi's think they are intitled to $750 for a pirated song that "THEY" sell for 70 centssource

Well there is such a notion as penalty rewards for breaking the law...but you're right this does seem excessive.

If you're worried install Peer Guardian.

This is very interesting. I would like to hear what the RIAA is using as criteria to determine the $750 in damages for one song. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. One ramification I can see if the amount of damages the person has to pay is reduced, a whole lot of people that were found guilty and paid the $750 will come forward asking for some kind of reimbursement.

They are all the same crap garbage. RIAA, MPAA, and the SBA. Liars thieves and pirates. 6 people had downloaded a copy of Novell Wordperfect 6.0 for DOS and it was a beta version and the SBA deemed that they lost over 2.5Million in revenue and they popped me for 250,000 judgement. They sold the software company 6months later, and Im sure insurance paid them for their "loss" plus a nice write-off on taxes.

Ok, here's my two cents on the issue.

Anyone who breaks this law does in fact owe the recording company the 70 cents or whatever. The $750 is pure garbage, although I could see the government fining lawbreakers an amount like this, but to give that money to the recording company is silly. If I steal something worth X dollars from my neighbour, they can only sue me in civil court for X dollars, unless I somehow caused other damage, too, like loss of wages (stealing tools for work or something). Stealing songs from the recording industry deprives them of revenue, but nothing else, and no additional money should be given to them for no reason.

I would like to see them give this explanation on exactly how they come up with this figure too. In my opinion, the RIAA has become another nutty lobby that is going crazy pulling agendas. 750 bucks for a 70 cent song. :shk:

You know, if they started realizing that the costs of their cds is still ridiculous, now that we can make them at home with cd burners, and print on them with some of the new printers out there, maybe they would get to the core of what is wrong. Maybe if they spent more time helping new fledgling artists by negotiating contracts in the artists favor, instead of letting them get ripped with a minute percentage, they would get a bit more sympathy.

I hold no personal sympathy for this group.
