$1.5 million for one CD???
The proposed law that would introduce outrageous charges for copying CDs is s stunning move of hubris by a media industry that seems to have forgotten who its customers are.
Now don't get me wrong. Personally you can't put a price on David Bowie at his best or the haunting melodies of Second Person, but the industry does so we abide by that. But to claim damages in the millions, that's taking things too far.
The RIAA has already said it thinks copying a CD you own should be considered piracy, yet I don’t see their lawyers pulling iPod users off the streets and imposing crippling fine, as well as confiscating the devices. Yet this is just what this law proposes, massive fines and the confiscation of any equipment used.
Prepare for the riots…

I think that is a bit to large a fine. Especially when much of what the media has on those films and music are hacked materials to begin with. Just because you have a spin off or have rewritten someones elses work, in some cases personal diarys, it doesn't make you that genous you would like others to belive you are. So if you don't want to be prirated, then maybe you need to rethink the expression "Turn About is Fair Play."

I think that this should count as "crule and unusual punishment". If I have to go to court, I want my case to be about what I have done, not what others might do [if an example isn't made].
Should we also pay for the songs we listen to on youtube? I have my music inside a virtual machine, so does that count as being downloaded? Just be smart about downloading. Anonimize and encrypt trafic.

This is a very large sum of money to fine someone for this, If i'm ever caught I'm going to provide a nice long list of IP address's from all the seeders and leechers on applications such a Utorrent and make the companys or persons sue them too. and thats going to cost them a fair amount of time and resources to go through the trouble of finding and going through potential double figures of foreign countrys and there laws to sue me thats its not worth the hassle, I think thats a major issue to consider.
