RIAA Wants Your Tax Money To Arrest You
from the oh-this-should-be-fun dept
Do you get the feeling the RIAA is just foaming at the mouth and has never actually stopped to maybe think about what they’re saying? Their latest move is to ask Congress to put more money towards arresting music “pirates”. This fits with the RIAA’s general stance that everyone is a criminal until proven innocent. They want extra money to go to the Justice Department’s cybercrime unit – but only if that money is focused on fighting “intellectual property piracy” instead of actual cybercrime. Hilary Rosen who sounds more ridiculous every day tries to make it sound as though people sharing music is more dangerous than any other sort of computer “crime”.
