If you are referring to the abbreviation I used, it stands for What The Freak. If you read it as something else, well, that's your problem then

that would depend on who is running riaa: if the european antitrust commission can enforece on behave of the world, sure it is not out of question for riaa to declare such a role.

Once the software finds someone sharing those files, that person becomes a possible target.

If they ever tag Django Reinhardt or Etta James, I am in BIG trouble.

The thread deals with the courts and file sharing. This is a matter of concern in quite a few countries, as any reader of the news is aware.

My post was in answer to Millwood, who I feel made an error in saying that the RIAA, (which he misspelled RMAA), is going after downloaders. Stopping downloading might be the ultimate goal, but from what I have read, the method they seem to be using is to go after the people who offer the files on file sharing networks for downloading by others.

Millwood had every right to relate the Canadian decision to the USA, because this is an international forum where there are several threads where the policies and court decisions of one nation are commented on by the citizens of other nations. Just as someone from Europe would have every right to enter this thread and post about the decisions of the EU courts on this matter.

Therefore, much as you would try to maintain that comment in this thread is limited to the effect on Canada, it doesn't work that way on this forum.

Moreover, there is a trend where courts of one nation are citing courts of other nations in their decisions. Someone from Australia once pointed out to me a decision in an Australian court that cited a decision by the US Supreme Court, and last year the US Supreme Court, for the first time, cited a decision from other nations' courts in one of it's opinions. Legally, and in so many other ways, it is getting to be a small world out there.

If you had read the last sentence of my original post, you would have realized that I was quite aware that the decision applies only to Canada.

Yep, threadjacking seems to be pretty frequent around here.

Default US Justice Dep't Seizes 200 Computers In International Warez Site Sweep

The US Justice Deptartment has confiscated over 200 computers from around the world in an effort to stop online piracy.

The goal is to smash the warez sites, from which file sharing networks draw much of their material:

The monopoly of the liberals have made them liberal in name only. The liberal BC premier Campbell behaves strikingly similar to the way the conservative Mike Harris did during his reign of terror in Ontario. The liberals will still win next election, but there's a chance they won't make a majority government. The only regret I'll have voting conservative (I voted for Cretin (misspelling on purpose) last time) is that Harper is the pary leader instead of MacKay.

Thank goodness for allofmp3.com. Legal, pay but cheap since in Russia, encodes on the fly to any bitrate, and even offers lossless compression.
