RIAA Using Scare Tactics On Grokster Site

from the log-this dept

Back in November, we noted that the RIAA had taken over the Grokster website as part of the settlement with the company and posted a note that was wrong and misleading (claiming the Supreme Court said something it hadn't said). Now, apparently, they've gone even further, though in a somewhat hilarious manner. Visitors to the site are being shown their own IP address and told that it was "LOGGED" (in all capital letters) -- as if there's something illegal about visiting the website. Rather than worry people, this is mostly just causing people to laugh at the RIAA. Still for folks who want to quickly check what your IP is, you can now add Grokster.com to other favorites like IP Chicken, while getting the added satisfaction that your IP address has been LOGGED by the entertainment industry.
