It's now official law of the land. If you have one 'illegal' MP3 on your hard drive or any piece of electronics, the government can take away all your electronics. That MP3 could have come from a CD that you owned. * George Bush signed this RIAA/MPAA pandering piece of trash. * http://torrentfreak.com/president-bush-signs-anti-piracy-czar-law-081014/

sorry, forgot to ask. does that only cover music files? or does that carry over to things like movies,imagies,software exc? i believe we can get around this though its going to become increasingly difficult and may even cost for membership to download 'free' items.

It covers anything downloaded onto an electronic device. However, enforcement is going to be dicey sense so much is passed around the web. * I do think that the cat vs mouse game of P2P VS **AA's will continue. Even China can't stop the flow of media. And if China can't do it...

G W Bush stuffed Beatles tunes into an iPod. You betcha that's illegal! Doesn't matter that he owned the CD, it was still illegal.
