    Can we sue the RIAA under the DMCA?

    I mean they are doing it why can't we.

    This is how I propose we do it.

    First make some Mp3's. They are your files. Include a copyright notice with the file tag. Just record your voice or something.

    Put it on a P2P network, rename it to something popular, like Modanna.MP3

    Let them download it. Keep the log of the download.

    Then sue them for downloading your music without permission...

    As this is exactly what some people could be getting charged for.

    Say you want to download an independent song, but it has been mislabled to a popular tune. YOu thought it was an independent, but it turned out to be Madonna..

    You get a subpoena unknowingly. We should all subpoena the RIAA, MPA, BSA.

    If 20 million people subpoena'd these entities, that would definitely tie them up for a while in court.


    I got the idea from this:

    "It's about the fact that anyone can without any effort obtain one of these DMCA subpoenas," said Meyer, referring to the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

    Which came from this article:

    I think I want to try this.. just to see if it can be done. What do you think?

    LOL....

    I wonder if you can get the RIAA for entrapment. Meaning they put their songs out there to catch the downloaders.

    There is no way an individual can stand up to these people. Where is the individual going to get the 10s of thousands of dollars that would be required to fight the RIAA? It is their strategy to hit the weak. Fear and precedent.

    The only thing that has a chance of working is a strong boycott. The reason is that it doesn't take a lot of money to accomplish. It only takes discipline. From what I hear on TV News, it isn't going to happen. People complain but won't take action.
