Wow, why are the peer-to-peer sites still allowing folks to download, if they are going to be sued later?
Heres the story
I have downloaded some songs, and am wondering if I am next in a few years, but I can honestly say, I did not share what I downloaded.

Honestly, its not really any different than all those ppl in the 80s/ early 90s that dubbed songs to cassette and made mix tapes for other ppl. Did any of those folks get sued for giving out copyrighted music for free? NO!!
Picture it as her walking in and stealing a CD
instead of a p2p program, it's no different.
Do they really expect to get any money out of these law suit?
I mean really what goes through the mind of these sick bastards.

Something else that confuses me.
Aerosmith (one of the bands that this woman downloaded) is signed to Sony.
Do you know what else Sony makes money from?
Thats right, Blank Cd's Blank DVD's, CD and DVD Burners and even good old cassette tapes.
It almost seems to me that Sony has been profiting from people pirating Music and Movies and then suing them for doing it, but that would be unethical so I'm sure I must be wrong
